Reverend Warnock Is Leading The Fight to Lower Costs for Georgia Farmers, Support Rural Communities 

Reverend Warnock Sits On The U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee

Atlanta, GA – Reverend Warnock, a member of the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee, is leading the fight to support Georgia agriculture, the state’s largest industry. In the Senate, Reverend Warnock is working to ensure Georgia farmers and farming families have the resources they need to keep food and produce on our tables and to keep our local economies strong. 

“Reverend Warnock wasted no time getting to work on behalf of Georgia’s largest industry, working to support farms by lowering their costs, investing in their mental health, and strengthening our rural communities across the state,” said Meredith Brasher, communications director. “Georgians see Reverend Warnock fighting for them in the U.S. Senate and they know they have a clear choice this fall.” 

BACKGROUND ON REVEREND WARNOCK’S WORK FOR GEORGIA FARMERS

  • Last month, Reverend Warnock visited a farm in Musella, Georgia to discuss his efforts to invest in farmer mental health, expand telehealth access in rural farming communities, and ensure farmers have the assistance they need to thrive. In the Senate, Reverend Warnock secured $10 million dollars in mental health resources for Georgia’s farmers.

  • The investments will help strengthen rural electric infrastructure and connect residents to affordable and dependable power.
  • They will also help Georgia farmers and rural small businesses purchase and install renewable energy systems and make energy efficiency improvements, saving them money on electricity and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
  • “We must keep working toward an ecologically and economically sustainable future for our planet and communities, and these investments are critical to supporting that goal here in Georgia. I will keep pushing for federal investments to make this vision a reality in every corner of our state,” said Sen. Rev. Warnock.
