YUBA CITY, CA – Last week, Senator John Boozman (R-AR) traveled to California to visit with rice farmers and industry partners here to discuss the region’s ongoing drought and its impact on California rice production, as well as priorities for the upcoming Farm Bill.

Senator Boozman currently serves as the ranking member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry.

“It was an honor to have Senator Boozman join us in California and show him around Montna Farms,” said Yuba City rice producer Al Montna.  “The Senator is a great advocate and friend of the rice industry, and it was our pleasure to host him.  We look forward to continuing to work with him as we address U.S. rice industry needs and throughout the development process for the next Farm Bill.”
