Rep. Mullin helped honor Utah conservation efforts

 

Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullin recently took part in a conservation event entitled “One Utah Summit” where he helped honor the state for its conservation efforts.

Rep. Mullin joined Republican Reps. Dan Newhouse and Chris Stewart, both leaders of the Congressional Western Caucus in presenting commemorative copies of a resolution to Utah Department of Agriculture and Food Commissioner Craig Buttars and Utah Association of Conservation Districts President Allen Henrie.

The resolution was introduced by a bipartisan group of House and Senate members to recognize the 75th anniversary of the National Association of Conservation Districts.

Leaders from Utah’s public, private and non-profit sectors gathered at Southern Utah University to analyze challenges and opportunities facing rural communities at the summit.

“To build upon these collaborative discussions, we are continuing the effort this week by joining leaders on the ground to see some of the innovative leadership by local agriculture and energy producers,” said Rep. Newhouse.

“It is important for us to hear firsthand from rural Americans about the work they are doing to advance our shared priorities – particularly when it comes to food security, conservation and energy independence,” he added.
