Senator Saxby Chambliss
US Senator Saxby Chambliss is returning to his home in Georgia after two decades of service in Washington. A strong advocate for rural America and agriculture, Chambliss believes challenges will come in the 114th congress to risk management tools approved in the new farm law. Chambliss says urban representation on the agriculture committees and budget constraints will make approving new farm policy even more difficult in the years to come. As a member of the 'Gang of Six', Chambliss says there will be consequences if elected leaders don't address some very difficult fiscal decisions.
This special six-part series addresses the important political changes impacting American agriculture and rural America:
For the second time in as many elections, Rep. Austin Scott, R-Ga., was unopposed and will begin his third term in Congress in January. In this video, Scott talks with Agri-Pulse's Spencer Chase about priorities of the House Ag Committee in the 114th Congress as well as being a younger than average congressman rising up the ranks of GOP leadership.
