Rep. Jackson Named To House Agriculture Committee
Congressman Ronny Jackson (TX-13) released a statement following his appointment to serve on the House Agriculture Committee. This powerful committee is charged with overseeing federal agriculture policy. This year the Agriculture Committee will be tasked with passing a new farm bill, the most impactful legislation for the agriculture industry—passed roughly every five years. The Committee is led by Chairman Glenn “G.T.” Thompson of Pennsylvania.
Jackson said: “Representing the largest agriculture district in Texas and one of the largest agriculture districts in the country, my work on the House Agriculture Committee is critical for the continued success of the farmers, ranchers, and producers of Texas’ Thirteenth Congressional District. I am ready to work diligently with Chairman Thompson and my other colleagues on the Committee to ensure we pass an impactful farm bill this year. I am excited to be a champion for Texas’s agriculture priorities and lead the way in providing the resources needed for farmers and ranchers in my district and across the state to continue to feed and clothe the world. We must work to strengthen the farm safety net, bolster our supply chain, and prioritize agriculture as a national security issue to help create a vibrant and productive rural economy.”
Thompson said: “The House Committee on Agriculture will hit the ground running in the 118th Congress to address the many headwinds facing farm families and rural America. Rep. Jackson’s perspective will be invaluable this Congress and I know he will be a fierce advocate for West Texas.”
