U.S. Senator John Barrasso received the “Friend of Farm Bureau” award at the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation 2010 annual meeting in Cody earlier this week. U.S. Senator Mike Enzi and U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis also received the “Friend of Farm Bureau” award. The Wyoming Farm Bureau specifically thanked Wyoming's delegation, for their support of death tax reform.
The “Friend of Farm Bureau” award is based upon voting records on American Farm Bureau Federation’s priority issues, specific leadership roles for Farm Bureau and how accessible and responsive the member of Congress is to Farm Bureau members and leaders.
