Culpeper Star-Exponent: Group ranks Spanberger most effective on agriculture


The Center for Effective Lawmaking recently ranked U.S. Rep. Abigail Spanberger, R-7th, as the most effective member of Congress on issues pertaining to agriculture, according to a release from the congresswoman’s office. With a score of 48.7, Spanberger received the highest effectiveness ranking on agriculture issues for the 117th Congress, the release stated.

“As 2023 Farm Bill negotiations continue, I remain focused on delivering results for our Commonwealth’s crop and livestock producer,” she said in a statement. “This focus on getting things done — not grandstanding — is how we protect America’s farm families, support agribusinesses, and give a voice to rural America.”

Spanberger said she was proud to be ranked as the most effective lawmaker on agriculture in the U.S. House and Senate.

“I’m committed to bringing Virginia’s farmers to the decision-making table,” she said. “As the only Virginian on the U.S. House Agriculture Committee, I take this responsibility seriously.”

Last month, the Virginia Farm Bureau gave Spanberger its “Friend of Farm Bureau Award” for her record of supporting Virginia’s crop and livestock producers, during a program at Graves Mountain Lodge in Madison County.
