DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Rep. Barry Moore, R-Alabama, has been chosen to serve on two committees for the U.S. House of Representatives, according to an announcement Tuesday.
Moore will serve on the House Agriculture Committee and the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.
Moore, having both a personal and educational background in agriculture science, said he’s excited to work for producers.
“I’m excited and eager to serve on these two committees to guarantee that the voices of Alabama’s Second Congressional District will be heard in Washington,” he said. “Growing up on a farm, I not only learned the value of hard work but the great sacrifices our farmers make to put food on our tables and clothes on our backs.”
Moore also had previous experience with working on veteran affairs, having served as the state chairman of Military and Veteran Affairs and authored legislation to help military families in child custody situations, provide resident status for military families and veterans looking to enroll in higher education, and other matters.
“As a veteran, I understand the severity of ensuring that every American who served this great country in our military receives the crucial benefits and services they deserve,” he said. “After they selflessly fought to defend our country, I vow to fight for their needs and to make sure they receive quality care.”
