Moran selected for ag subcommittee

Kansas

Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) has been appointed to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies. This subcommittee has responsibility for setting annual spending limits for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration.

"Agriculture is a staple of the Kansas economy and USDA plays many roles in helping to maintain agriculture's success," Moran said. "Whether it's research to advance the latest in agricultural technologies, loan guarantees to help rural communities build water and wastewater facilities, assistance to maintain watershed structures to protect life and property, or the administration of the farm safety net and conservation practices, the work USDA does on a daily basis matters. I look forward to the challenge of finding the proper balance that allows USDA to provide necessary services to rural America, while at the same time reducing spending to bring our expanding federal debt under control."

"We're delighted that Sen. Moran has earned this important leadership position in the Senate Appropriations Committee," said Steve Baccus, a farmer from Ottawa County who serves as president of the Kansas Farm Bureau. "We look forward to Sen. Moran's continued leadership on behalf of agriculture and rural Kansas."

The Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies is one of 12 subcommittees that make up the Senate Appropriations Committee. The Appropriations Committee is responsible for annually allocating the funds necessary for the federal government to operate.
