NAWG Applauds Senate Panel Action on Secretary Vilsack, Calls for Quick Senate ApprovalTue, 02 Feb 2021 15:55:22 CST
Today, the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry held a confirmation hearing for President Joe Biden’s nominee for Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, and followed with a quick Committee vote this afternoon. NAWG Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Chandler Goule made the following statement in response.
“Today, Secretary Vilsack demonstrated his qualifications for the job and his vast knowledge of issues important to production agriculture. During his previous tenure as Secretary, NAWG had a great working relationship with Secretary Vilsack and his staff and look forward to him resuming his role at USDA. There are many challenges confronting wheat farmers across the country and it is critical that the incoming Administration fill the many staff vacancies at USDA. We call on the full Senate to move this nomination forward as quickly as possible.”
