Illinois Representative Cheri Bustos said she's now in a unique position to fight for the midwest's number one industry: agriculture.
This after Bustos was named to the House Committee on Agriculture. Bustos represents the 17th Congressional District which includes the Quad Cities, and is home to thousands of farmers and millions of acres of farmland.
Bustos said this will give her an opportunity to be a strong advocate for the AG. Community.
