ARLINGTON, Va. (May 1, 2023) – The Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) is pleased to recognize Rep. Dusty Johnson of South Dakota as a recipient of ARA’s Legislator of the Year Award.
“I’m honored to receive the Legislator of the Year award from the Ag Retailers Association. Working with them and taking their priorities to the halls of Congress has helped support our farmers and ranchers across the U.S., strengthening our ag industry. I’ll continue to be a champion for American ag producers—for this Farm Bill and beyond,” says Rep. Dusty Johnson, R-S.D.
Each year, ARA recognizes top legislators who have championed the issues of importance to agriculture and agriculture suppliers.
“Representative Johnson’s unwavering support for the ag retail industry on issues related to addressing the nation’s supply chain challenges is why ARA chose to honor him with this award,” says ARA President & CEO Daren Coppock.
“He was the primary House Republican sponsor of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2021 and has been extremely active on a number of other issues of importance to the nation’s agricultural industry.”
