Working together

Here are a few things I thought you'd like to know:

1. Working Together

Georgia's Historically Black Colleges and Universities are one of our state's greatest assets. In last year's Farm Bill, Congressman David Scott (D-GA-13) and I worked together to secure funding for agriculture scholarships at HBCUs across the country, including Fort Valley State University in middle Georgia. These scholarships are a great step forward and will help encourage diverse leadership in our agricultural community.

2. President Trump Visits Georgia

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were in Atlanta this week to meet with federal, state, and local professionals working to address the opioid epidemic.
