MIAMI-Today the American Farm Bureau Federation along with the Florida Farm Bureau awarded Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) the "Friend of Farm Bureau" award.  He made the following statement. 

“I am honored to accept this important award from my friends at the Miami-Dade Farm Bureau.  I remain committed to continuing my work on behalf of Florida’s nursery growers and fruit and vegetable farmers to ensure that their voices are heard in Washington,” said Diaz-Balart.  “I plan to closely monitor the implementation of last year’s historic Farm Bill, which will have a direct and considerable impact in our own community.  Given our unique agricultural industry, Florida is positioned to see substantial benefits, specifically in areas such as Homestead and Immokalee.”
