National Corn Growers Association Urges Congress to Confirm Ag Secretary Nominee Sonny Perdue

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 14:23:30 CDT

National Corn Growers Association Urges Congress to Confirm Ag Secretary Nominee Sonny Perdue Today the Senate Agriculture Committee held a hearing on the nomination of Sonny Perdue as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. The following is a statement from the National Corn Growers Association:


“The National Corn Growers Association reiterates our support for Governor Perdue as the next Secretary of Agriculture, and we urge the Senate to move quickly to confirm him.


“Today, Governor Perdue promised to be a ‘strong and tenacious advocate’ for America’s farmers and ranchers and ‘USDA’s chief salesman around the world.’ We could not agree more on the need for strong leadership at USDA, especially when it comes to trade. Governor Perdue pledged to work closely with the rest of the Administration to negotiate strong trade deals that benefit America’s farmers and ranchers. We also appreciate his commitment to a strong Renewable Fuel Standard.


“USDA has been without a Secretary for more than two months, at a time when there is much work to do. NCGA stands ready to work with Governor Perdue and the rest of the Trump Administration to support strong trade policy, continue investing in renewable fuels, protecting risk management programs, and preparing for the next farm bill. We urge the Senate to confirm him as soon as possible.”
