Stabenow, Lucas Likely Ag Committee Chairs


With the defeat Tuesday of Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) is expected to take over the gavel as chair of the Agriculture Committee in the 112th Congress. And with Republicans gaining control of the House, Rep. Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), who coasted to re-election Tuesday, will likely be the next chair of the House Agriculture Committee.

Lucas would be the first Oklahoman to serve as chairman of the House Agriculture Committee.
