WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, announced that Coleman Garrison will be joining as professional staff managing the conservation and climate portfolios on the Republican side of the committee.
“We are excited to welcome Coleman to the committee. His experience and subject matter knowledge will be extremely valuable to the team as we begin writing the new farm bill. I look forward to working with him to help ensure our farmers continue to feed, clothe and fuel the world while maintaining our global leadership in efficiency and sustainability,” Boozman said.
