Ag committee chair reacts to SOTU

U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, issued this statement about President Obama's State of the Union address:

“In the spirit of bipartisanship, I was happy to sit with my Republican colleague from the Senate Agriculture Committee, Senator Pat Roberts from Kansas. The unity that was demonstrated tonight by members of both parties is very encouraging.

“I am pleased that the President focused on the most important issue for Michigan: helping our businesses grow and create jobs. As he said tonight, the way we do this is by out-innovating, out-building, and out-educating our competition. I am also happy he will continue to seek bipartisan action to address the budget deficit in a responsible way.

“I will continue to work with the President and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to keep our focus on jobs, expanding opportunities for small businesses, advanced manufacturing, and agriculture. Our top priority needs to be a focus on jobs for everyone who wants and needs to work and creating opportunities for every family and every business to succeed and prosper.”
