Council Welcomes Congressman Kevin Yoder

The Agricultural Business Council of Kansas City looks forward to welcoming Congressman Kevin Yoder to the Council's August 16 Luncheon Meeting.  

Representative Kevin Yoder is a 5th generation Kansan and grew up on a grain and livestock farm in rural Kansas near a town called Yoder. It was on his family farm where Kevin learned the true value of hard work, and saw first-hand the ingenuity and prairie spirit that makes Kansas such a special place. He represents the Third Congressional District of Kansas, which includes Johnson County, Wyandotte County and the northeast corner of Miami County.

In 2017, Kevin was sworn in for his fourth term and returns to the House Appropriations Committee. In the 115th Congress, he will serve as the Chairman of the Legislative Branch Subcommittee, as well as continue to serve on the Agriculture and Financial Services Subcommittees, focusing on balancing the federal budget, reducing the national debt, and supporting policies that help private sector job growth.
