Congressman Mike Simpson today announced the endorsement of the Milk Producers of Idaho.
“I am honored to have the support of the dairymen as I work in Washington,” said Congressman Simpson. “Idaho ranks 3rd in the nation for milk production, and the dairy industry is a large part of Idaho’s economy. In my role as co-chair of the Congressional Dairy Caucus, I work to ensure the concerns of the dairy industry are heard and to lessen burdensome government regulations often placed upon them.”
“We are proud to endorse Congressman Simpson,” said MPI’s Executive Director Brent Olmstead. “His support for the FY2016 Omnibus bill, which loosened transportation regulations, has shown his continued commitment to the dairy industry. Many rural families and communities in Idaho rely on the success of dairymen, it is important that we send Congressman Simpson back to Washington to continue representing the best interests of Idahoans.”
