Thank you, Sen. Jerry Moran, for supporting for agriculture and our farmers as more and more groups try to create a negative narrative about the agricultural industry — and more specifically sugar.

I would like to thank to Moran for supporting our American agricultural industry and standing up for the American jobs our industry creates. In a time when foreign competitors and their American supporters are working to manipulate the commodity markets, it is refreshing to see our state’s senator do the right thing by supporting America and our nation’s sugar beet and cane farmers.

Some members of Congress are supporting policies that will put thousands of American farming jobs at risk, which is not only un-American, it flies in the face of one of our region’s biggest industries. That is why I thank Moran for his service to our state on this issue and support him for standing up for American jobs and American agriculture by supporting a strong, pro-American sugar policy.

Jim Michaels,

Hays
