The Senate Agriculture Committee Tuesday afternoon approved President Biden's nomination of Tom Vilsack to return to the helm of USDA as Secretary of Agriculture.
Kevin Scott, soy grower from South Dakota and president of the American Soybean Association commented, “We recognize the experience Vilsack brings to the role, having served as agriculture secretary eight years during the Obama administration and also as a former governor of Iowa, a significant soy and agriculture state.”
ASA is hopeful that the full Senate will swiftly confirm Vilsack’s nomination.
