Dairy Defined Podcast: Sen. Pat Roberts on His Past and Agriculture's Future

Mon, 14 Dec 2020 09:42:48 CST

Dairy Defined Podcast: Sen. Pat Roberts on His Past and Agriculture's Future Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts is leaving Congress after 40 years in January. The only person to lead both the House and Senate agriculture committees takes with him a wealth of wisdom in agriculture policy - but also holds optimism for agriculture’s ability to get things done in an environment of difficult challenges.

“I would just say that I am very confident that the people who will be taking my place, they have a lot of experience,” Roberts said in a Dairy Defined interview released today. “They're good folks. I think the same attempt, at least, with regards to making it bipartisan, will continue.”

Roberts, who first came to Washington as a congressional staffer a half-century ago, also reflects on the two farm bills he led -- 1996’s Freedom to Farm law and the 2018 bill -- as well as one area where he wished he could have done more: his leadership of the Senate Intelligence Committee during the Iraq War. He also said he doesn’t consider his career to be over - without revealing plans, he said that when it comes to farm policy, “I intend to have my finger in the pie somewhere.”
