Press release from the Office of Congresswoman Kat Cammack

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Today, the House Committee on Agriculture announced its committee roster for the 118th Congress. Representative Cammack will serve a second term on the committee as the only Florida Republican of the 26 total GOP Conference members appointed.  

“It’s an honor to serve a second term on the Agriculture Committee,” said Rep. Cammack. “2023 is a big year for the committee, with the 2023 Farm Bill heading our way. The Farm Bill will prioritize the needs of our farmers, ranchers, and foresters who work hard each day to feed, clothe, and fuel our nation. After the last two years of labor shortages, supply chain challenges, and soaring prices, I’m looking forward to joining my colleagues to put the needs of our producers and rural communities first.”

“I welcome this diverse group of legislators to the House Committee on Agriculture for the 118th Congress,” said Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson, Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture. “It’s imperative we hit the ground running through a rigorous hearing schedule, listening sessions, and aggressive oversight. I look forward to working closely with my colleagues as we put forward commonsense solutions that provide certainty for rural America.”

“Florida is a top producer of dozens of commodities and I’m proud to continue championing the issues that matter most to the Sunshine State. I traveled all over the state during the last Congress to learn more about the challenges facing our rural communities and look forward to continuing these trips to ensure we’re responsive, focused, and equipped to deliver,” Cammack added.

The Committee on Agriculture was created on May 2, 1820, and has jurisdiction over agriculture and related subjects including forestry, agro-economics, agricultural research, agricultural products and commodities, commodity exchanges, the animal industry, crop insurance, water and soil conservation, the dairy industry, human nutrition, rural development, agricultural engineering, and more.

In addition to the Committee on Agriculture, Rep. Cammack serves on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce during the 118th Congress.
