Mitchell Recognizes the Michigan Convoy

April 5, 2017

I had the opportunity to share an incredible story of Michiganders selflessly lending a hand to those in need.

In early March, wildfires spread through Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado, devastating families and destroying crops and livestock - farmers' income for next year. Hearing of the devastation, Michigan farmers, truckers, and volunteers mobilized quickly to bring aid to the farmers in need of immediate assistance.

I am proud to highlight the efforts of the Michigan ag community, and was happy to be able to aid some of these efforts by getting permits issued for their travel.
