Farm Bureau names Woodall a friend to Georgia farmers

2015/05/18

By: Curt Yeomans 

Georgia farmers have a friend in U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.).

At least that’s the word from officials at the Georgia Farm Bureau, who say the congressman has been a good buddy to the state’s farming industry.

The Georgia Farm Bureau presented one of its Friend of the Farm Bureau Award to Woodall, whose district includes most of Gwinnett County, as a token of appreciation for support he gave the agriculture industry during the 113th Congress. Bureau officials presented it to Woodall during the their County Presidents’ Trip to Washington, D.C.

“Rep. Woodall has been a strong advocate on agricultural issues,” Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall said. “We greatly appreciate his support for the state’s largest industry, both in his votes on the House floor and in his willingness to listen to the farmers’ point of view.”

The award is given out once every two years since 1996. The American Farm Bureau Federation chooses the recipient based on how he or she votes on issues that are among the federation’s legislative priorities. It looks at other factors, including how many bills the legislator has sponsored or co-sponsored and what leadership role they held on priority issues.

They are also evaluated on how they respond to Farm Bureau officials and members.

Bureau officials presented awards to Reps. Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.), David Scott (D-Ga.), Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) and Austin Scott (R-Ga.), as well as Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) during the trip.

Rep. Woodall Votes to Preserve State & Local Control of Water Supply

2015/05/13

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement regarding his support of H.R. 1732, the “Regulatory Integrity Protection Act.” Passing the House by a vote of 261-155, the bill would preserve state and local authority over matters of water supply and prevent unprecedented expansion of federal jurisdiction in this area.

“There is no one more invested in keeping our rivers, streams, and water supply clean than those of us right here at home,” said Rep. Woodall.  “In recent years we’ve seen Washington’s influence grow larger, and all too often at the expense of our job-creators, farmers, and local governments.  This legislation stands up for Georgia and is a step towards more effective and accountable government that protects our natural resources, economy, and our communities.”

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.

(Washington, DC) –Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA-07) issued the following statement regarding the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, speaking before a joint session of Congress on April 29, 2015.
