LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A former Lubbock Congressman will be honored this month.  Larry Combest will receive the "Tribute to Texas Agriculture" award on January 26th at the Austin Club.  The award recognizes those who have given exceptional service to agriculture.  Combest is credited for writing and getting Congressional support for the 2002 Farm Bill, which protected many West Texas farmers from the prospect of bankruptcy at a time of dismally low cotton prices.

Dr. Jim Mazurkiewicz, director of the Texas Agriculture Lifetime Leadership program says, "Larry Combest served our state in Congress and chaired the U.S. House Agriculture Committee during some of the most trying times in the industry."
