This week, the House Republican Steering Committee elected Glenn GT Thomspon as Chairman of the House Ag Committee.

He will be the first Chairman from Pennsylvania in almost 170 years.

Thompson said he will put farmers at the top of his priority list.

“I am honored to lead the Committee on Agriculture and build on the accomplishments of the past two years as Ranking Member. The political landscape in Washington may be fractured, but as Chairman, I will prioritize the needs of our producers and rural communities—the backbone of this country. We will keep our foot on the gas to deliver principled solutions, robust oversight, and a Farm Bill that is responsive to the needs of the country’s farmers, ranchers, and foresters.”
