Stutzman Named Congressional Sentinel by Heritage Action

Washington, D.C. – This week, the influential grassroots and conservative policy group Heritage Action named U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman one of just twenty-three “House Sentinels” for the 112th Congress. Michael Needham, the CEO of Heritage Action for America, issued the following statement:
 
"During the 112th Congress, Representative Stutzman stood guard, vigilantly protecting our freedoms,” said Needham. “As a Sentinel, he represents the tip of the spear in Washington.  We look forward to his continued leadership on pursuing a balanced budget and in trying to bring sanity to America's farm and food stamp policy."
 
Background:
 
Heritage Action works to advance conservative policies outlined by its sister organization the Heritage Foundation, the country’s most renowned conservative think tank. More information on the Heritage Action scorecard can be found here.
 
Last summer, Congressman Stutzman and Mr. Needham called for a “farm-only farm bill” in The Wall Street Journal.
