Senator Stabenow has spent her life working for the people of Michigan and improving the lives of all Americans. She has authored over 160 bills that have been signed into law. This includes a transformational mental health and addiction initiative that has resulted in $135 million in critically needed community services for Michigan. In addition, as Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee, and previously as Ranking Member, Senator Stabenow has led the passage of two five-year Farm Bills which, among other things, set agriculture, food, bio-energy, and rural development policies for the country.

“Throughout her career, Senator Debbie Stabenow has demonstrated a commitment to bipartisan leadership through collaboration on several core issues of the Keystone Policy Center, including agriculture, energy, manufacturing, education and health care. She has a well-earned reputation as a coalition-builder with a fervent devotion to serve not only the people in her home state, but all Americans. We are honored to recognize her with the 2022 Keystone Leadership Award and thank her for her commitment to inspire leaders to rise above entrenched positions to reach common higher ground,” said Christine Scanlan, president and CEO of Keystone Policy Center. 


Keystone Policy Center established the Keystone Leadership Awards in 1994 to recognize extraordinary leadership by individuals and organizations whose work embraces their model, spirit, and mission of creating lasting solutions through strategic collaboration. Keystone honors individuals and organizations within its areas of work as well as recognizes leaders in government and the media who create impact in the public interest.
