Walz-Golden Triangle Award

First District Representative Tim Walz has been awarded the Golden Triangle Award by the National Farmers Union for his strong support for agriculture policy and family farmers across southern Minnesota.

Walz said he was honored to receive the award and said he will continue to push House leadership to appoint a conference committee so an agreement can be reached on a bipartisan, long-term Farm Bill that gives producers the certainty they need to continue to feed and fuel the world.

The Golden Triangle recipients were selected for their leadership on a variety of issues, including the 2013 Farm Bill, dairy policy, competition, support for the continuation of energy programs and provisions for a safety net for farmers in times of long term market collapse or natural disaster......
