Chairwoman Stabenow Congratulates Xochitl Torres Small on USDA Under Secretary for Rural Development Nomination

Fri, 18 Jun 2021 13:21:37 CDT

Chairwoman Stabenow Congratulates Xochitl Torres Small on USDA Under Secretary for Rural Development Nomination Today, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, issued the following statement regarding President Joe Biden's intent to nominate Xochitl Torres Small to serve as Under Secretary for Rural Development at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

I am very pleased to see President Biden nominate Xochitl Torres Small for this important post. She was a champion for rural development, particularly expanding high-speed internet, during her time in Congress, and I look forward to her nomination, said Chairwoman Stabenow. Im also thrilled President Biden has moved quickly to nominate someone to this critical position, which the Trump Administration had eliminated. I led the fight to reestablish the position in the 2018 Farm Bill. But even then the Trump Administration failed to nominate anyone for it. Rural Development plays an essential role in so many programs that help small towns and rural areas thrive. It deserves to be championed at the highest levels.
