Sonnenberg to Chair Ag Committee

Colorado Farm Bureau member and past CFB State Board member, State Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg, R-Sterling, today was named the new chair of the House Agriculture, Livestock, and Natural Resources committee.

“I am excited to chair the committee that handles the issues from the top two industries in the state,” commented Sonnenberg. “Both agriculture and the oil and gas industry are vital to our economy and I look forward to doing what I can to get government out of the way so they can do what they do best.”

The House Agriculture and Natural Resources committee will be the committee of reference for a wide range of possible legislation ranging from energy to water and animal issues to environmental concerns.
