Mike Pompeo was sworn in this week as our new Secretary of State. He hit the ground running and has already traveled to Brussels to meet with our NATO allies. I sat down with Secretary Pompeo this week and know President Trump and the American people will be well-served with him as our chief diplomat.
Today, we held a round table discussion on the 2018 Farm Bill at UGA's Tifton Campus. It was great to hear directly from farmers, researchers, and ag students about their needs and unique challenges as we work on the Farm Bill.
Senator Isakson and I introduced a Senate resolution recognizing the 100th anniversary of Fort Benning in Columbus. For 100 years, Fort Benning has not only been a critical asset to Georgia, but also to the U.S. Army and our national defense. Congratulations to the entire Benning family on this significant milestone.
