tv_buzzworthy 10dbMONTICELLO-State Senator Eddie Cheatham and State Representative Shellia Lampkin spoke to students of the University of Arkansas-Monticello’s School of Agriculture about agricultural and rural development issues discussed in the 2013 session of Arkansas Legislature.

   Held in the School of Agriculture Auditorium Room 109 Monday, April 29, both Cheatham and Lampkin spoke to the agriculture students about their experiences in congress as well as this year’s past session. Each discussed topics including raw milk, feral hogs, Obamacare, gun control and the Big River Steel Mill plan which looks to bring in over 500 jobs to northeast Arkansas by building a steel mill in Osceola.

   Lampkin said while this year’s hundred daylong sessions was quite long and time consuming with many arguments and debates between the congressional members, much was achieved.

   “You have to work together,” Lampkin said. “We managed some big accomplishments over several important issues concerning Arkansas like  several tax cuts, gun control laws and Arkansas Healthcare Reform.”

   UAM’s School of Agriculture offers a class every spring semester over agriculture education and policy. Many of the students in this semester’s class were on hand for this event.

   Both Cheatham and Lampkin represent southeast Arkansas in the state legislature.
