NMPF Celebrates Rep. Glenn Thompson's Election as Ranking Member of House Agriculture Committ

Thu, 03 Dec 2020 11:28:30 CST

NMPF Celebrates Rep. Glenn Thompson's Election as Ranking Member of House Agriculture Committ The National Milk Producers Federation today congratulated Representative Glenn 'GT' Thompson (R-PA) on being elected by his colleagues to serve as the Ranking Member of the House Agriculture Committee in the 117th Congress. Rep. Thompson is the descendant of a long line of dairy farmers and been a champion of dairy producers on the House Agriculture Committee since coming to Congress in 2009.

"We have enjoyed working with Congressman Thompson and his team for years. GT has been a vocal and effective advocate for the needs of dairy farmers in Pennsylvania and throughout the country," said Jim Mulhern, NMPF president and CEO. "He also has a keen understanding of the need to build a vibrant rural economy to sustain a safe, abundant, and affordable food supply to nourish our country and our planet."

During his time in Congress, Rep. Thompson has played a critical role in enacting bipartisan policies that create an effective climate for dairy farmers and their cooperatives to produce safe, healthy dairy products in an environmentally sustainable manner. As Vice Chairman of the Agriculture Committee, GT worked with his colleagues to secure much-needed dairy policy reforms, culminating in the Dairy Margin Coverage program created in the 2018 Farm Bill.

Congressman Thompson served as Chairman of the Conservation and Nutrition Subcommittees during the writing of the last two farm bills. He has championed bipartisan legislation to improve the effectiveness of farm bill conservation programs and to enhance consumption of nutritious dairy products. In addition, GT has been a vocal advocate for expanding markets for all farmers, helping to push through the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement last year.

"Congressman Thompson's bipartisan record of achievement speaks for itself, and we are eager to work with him to build on that record as he assumes his new role," said Mulhern. "We congratulate GT on his appointment as Ranking Member and know he will continue to be a leading voice in the House for dairy and all of agriculture."

NMPF featured Rep. Thompson on its Dairy Defined podcast earlier this year. The full interview is available here
