Congressman Rick Crawford was elected to represent Arkansas’s 1st District in 2010. He is a senior member on the House Agriculture Committee, having played a critical role in passing two Farm Bills, having served on the Conference Committees in 2014 and 2018, and as Chairman of Agriculture Subcommittees in three of his first five terms in Congress. He views agriculture as a national security issue – a nation that cannot feed itself is a nation that is not secure.
National security is one of the Congressman’s top priorities and he was appointed in 2017 to serve on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) – the first Arkansas representative on the committee. He also serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he has worked to create safer and more reliable highways, waterways, railways, and runways. He is the current Chairman of the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.
