NCGA-Logo-3Following the announcements of the House Speaker John Boehner’s retirement, the National Corn Growers Association President, Chip Bowling, has released a statement thanking him for his working in agriculture.

“We are grateful for Speaker Boehner’s leadership in so many areas, including service on the House Agriculture Committee, and his work for a more transparent and productive Congress,” Bowling writes.

The statement highlights Pope Francis’s words to Congress, praising Speaker Boehner for his commitment to “sacrifice particular interests in order to share, in justice and peace, its goods, its interests, its social life.”  NCGA further requests that Congress come together to solve the issues of the federal budget, tax reform, and infrastructure and be ready to move our country forward with constructive solutions.
