Congressman Darren LaHood of Peoria stopped by our studios this week where the IFB Board of Directors awarded LaHood the ‘Friend of Agriculture’ award.

LaHood, son of longtime congressman and Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, was elected last year in a special election. 

LaHood said one big accomplishment in his first year in Congress was passage of the WRDA bill. 

LaHood hopes to see a vote on the Trans Pacific Partnership after the election, but admits it is a tough sell with the current political climate.
