Ag Retailers Name Lankford Legislator of the Year

For his work on reforming the federal regulations and rule making process, the Agricultural Retailers Association awarded U.S. Senator James Lankford its Legislator of the Year Award. Lankford, as chair of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management, has held hearings and introduced legislation to reduce the burdens on small and agricultural businesses.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the Agricultural Retailers Association,” said Lankford. “The work our agricultural community does every day to feed, clothe, and support our nation never ends. Farmers and ranchers respect the land, their neighbors, and the rules. But they want the rules to be fair, and they want their voices to be heard. Regulators that live their lives on concrete should listen to the insight of families who live on the soil before they make policy decisions about agriculture. Our Oklahoma farm communities rely on their local agricultural retailers to meet their farm business needs. In this never-ending work, agribusinesses should not have to battle their federal government over-burdensome regulatory guidance. We need more commonsense reforms, like the Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act, so we can continue to allow individuals to serve others without government intrusion.”
