McMillan to be sworn in as Commissioner of Agriculture & Industries

MONTGOMERY - Agriculture & Industries Commissioner-elect John McMillan will be sworn in at Alabama's Inauguration Day ceremony on Monday, January 17, 2011. Before taking his oath of office, McMillan will drive a tractor in the inaugural parade accompanied by 100 Future Farmers of America (FFA) from throughout Alabama. It is one of several events in McMillan's schedule of inauguration day events released today.
