Senator Sue Rezin receives Illinois Farm Bureau “Friend of Agriculture” Award

<p>Members of the Bureau, Marshall Putnam, and Will County Farm Bureaus presented State Senator Sue Rezin (R-Peru) with the Illinois Farm Bureau &ldquo;Friend of Agriculture&rdquo; award. </p>
<p>&ldquo;Agriculture represents the largest industry in Illinois,&rdquo; said Senator Rezin. &ldquo;I am truly honored to have received this recognition for my work in support of our farm and farm families.&rdquo;</p>
<p>According to the Illinois Farm Bureau, this award honors state and federal legislators who understand the importance of Illinois Agriculture. Recipients of this award recognize the far-reaching benefits of Illinois’ agricultural products and the importance farmers play in providing quality food, fiber and fuel for our State, Nation and World.</p>
<p>&ldquo;Senator Rezin has been, and continues to be a strong leader at the capitol,&rdquo; said Kevin Semlow, Illinois Farm Bureau State Legislative Affairs Director. &ldquo;Her ability to understand and take action on agricultural issues that are important to her constituents proves why we need to send her back to Springfield.&rdquo;</p>
<p>&ldquo;Farmers represent the small businesses that drive our state economy,&rdquo; said Senator Rezin. &ldquo;We must continue to work with the entire ag community to move the industry, and this state forward.&rdquo;</p>
