Indiana Senator Richard Lugar was recognized today by the National 25x’25 Alliance for his commitment to renewable energy. Along with Senator Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Senator Lugar drafted an amendment that would continue mandatory funding for a number of farm energy programs as part of the proposed 2012 Farm Bill.
Bill Richards, a co-chair of the National 25x’25 Steering Committee says they are grateful for Senator Lugar’s efforts on behalf of energy programs that benefit farmers. He adds the “Senator’s foresight and legislative initiatives have served to boost the economy and help create and retain jobs in our rural communities.”
