Ranking Republican Lucas announces members of committee

Three new members join the Republican Committee roster

Jan. 9, Agriculture Committee Ranking Republican Frank Lucas announced the Republican membership of the committee. Three new members were added to the Republican Committee roster including Rep. Phil Roe (TN-1), Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-9), and Rep. Glenn W. Thompson (PA-5). There is one vacancy on the committee that will be filled at a later date. Subcommittee assignments, as well as subcommittee ranking members, will be announced as the information is made available. The list of Agriculture Committee Republicans is included below.

"I welcome Reps. Roe, Luetkemeyer, and Thompson to the Agriculture Committee and look forward to working with all my Republican colleagues on the important agriculture issues we will address during the 111th Congress. Our farmers and ranchers face significant challenges including higher input costs, increased regulation, and devastating disasters. In these difficult times, my colleagues and I will continue to work to ensure that they have the tools they need to produce a safe, affordable, and abundant food supply for all Americans," said Ranking Member Frank Lucas.

Rep. Phil Roe represents Tennessee's 1st Congressional District. Roe is the former mayor of Johnson City. He is also a medical doctor who ran an OB/GYN practice for 30 years. The 1st district is a producer of livestock, tobacco, and fruits and vegetables.

Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer represents the 9th Congressional District in Missouri. Luetkemeyer is a livestock producer who represents more than 20,000 farms in northwest Missouri. There are more than 6 million acres of farmland in his district, accounting for 72% of the land. The 9th District is a producer of corn, soybeans, cattle, and hogs.

Rep. Glenn W. "GT" Thompson represents the 5th Congressional District in Pennsylvania, which is the largest and most rural in the state. Timber is the number one crop, followed by dairy and beef production. The Alleghany National Forest is located entirely within the district. Prior to being elected, Thompson worked as a healthcare executive for 26 years.
