Senate Ag Subcommittee Assignments


There has been some shuffling of Senate Agriculture Subcommittee chairmanships and assignments to accommodate Senator Blanche Lincoln’s move to Agriculture Committee Chairman.

Former Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Tom Harkin of Iowa assumes seats on three subcommittees formerly held by Lincoln. He’ll assume seats on the Subcommittee on Rural Revitalization, Conservation, Forestry and Credit; the Subcommittee on Hunger, Nutrition, and Family Farms; and the Subcommittee on Production, Income Protection and Price Support. These seats were previously held by Lincoln.

Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow will assume Chairmanship of the Subcommittee on Rural Revitalization, Conservation, Forestry and Credit. This seat was previously held by Lincoln.

Colorado Senator Michael Bennet will assume Chairmanship of the Subcommittee on Energy, Science and Technology. This seat was previously held by Stabenow.
