Today, the United States Senate confirmed Tom Vilsack as the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture (USDA) by a vote of 92-7. Following the vote, Republican Leader of the House Committee on Agriculture, Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson, issued the following statement:
“I’d like to congratulate Tom Vilsack on his confirmation as USDA Secretary. While we may not see eye to eye on all agriculture issues, I look forward to identifying opportunities for bipartisan solutions to rural America’s most pressing needs, one of which is targeted COVID relief. I implore Secretary Vilsack and the Biden Administration to unfreeze the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program funds immediately to better assist our farmers, ranchers, and producers who have been hit hard by the pandemic."
