NCC Congratulates Georgia Congressman David Scott on Being Elected Chairman of House Agriculture Committee

Fri, 04 Dec 2020 09:16:34 CST

NCC Congratulates Georgia Congressman David Scott on Being Elected Chairman of House Agriculture Committee Congressman David Scott (D-GA) was chosen as the next chairman of the House Agriculture Committee for the 117th Congress, overwhelmingly elected yesterday by the full House Democratic caucus.

“On behalf of the chicken industry, I want to congratulate Congressman Scott on being named the next Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, a historic achievement as the first African American and first Georgia House member to ever hold the position,” said NCC President Mike Brown. “As a veteran of the committee, and a long-time member of the Congressional Chicken Caucus, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of agricultural issues to the chairmanship. We look forward to working with him in the 117th Congress on matters of importance to our industry.”

Georgia is the number one broiler producing state in the country, and broilers are the number one agricultural commodity in Georgia, accounting for 47 percent of all agricultural sales, totaling $4.49 billion, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service’s (NASS) 2017 Census of Agriculture. Congressman Scott was originally elected to the House of Representatives in 2002 and has served on the Agriculture Committee in every Congress since. Currently in his ninth term, he represents Georgia's Thirteenth Congressional District, which includes six counties around metro Atlanta: Cobb, Clayton, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton and Henry. He began his public service by being elected to the Georgia General Assembly in 1974.
