Naig: Gov. Reynolds Continues to Advocate for Iowa Agriculture

DES MOINES, Iowa (Jan. 12, 2021) – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig issued the following statement in response to Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds’ Condition of the State address this evening.

“I want to thank Gov. Reynolds for her leadership and continued support of the Iowa agriculture community during this very challenging year. Despite the economic setbacks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our state is in a stronger position to respond than others and that’s because of Gov. Reynolds’ and the Iowa Legislature’s responsible fiscal management.

As we continue down the road to recovery, I look forward to collaborating with Gov. Reynolds, the Iowa Legislature, the Economic Recovery Advisory Board, and other private partners to drive agricultural priorities — like renewable fuels, water quality and environmental stewardship, and foreign animal disease prevention and response planning — that pave the way for future growth.”
