WASHINGTON – On Thursday, U.S. Rep. Cindy Axne, D-Iowa, was reappointed to serve on the House Agriculture Committee for the 117th Congress.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to once again serve as a voice for Iowa’s farmers and agricultural interests on the House Agriculture Committee,” Axne said. “Ensuring that Iowa’s family farmers, producers, and rural communities thrive not only supports Iowa’s economy – but it helps us feed our nation and the entire world. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, Chairman David Scott, Secretary-designate Vilsack, and President Joe Biden to repair the damage done by devastating trade war and natural disasters and promote prosperity in the years and harvests to come.”
Axne noted that she used her tenure on the House Agriculture Committee as the sole Iowan on the committee last Congress to raise Iowans’ voices, pass critical legislation, and fight back against policies that would harm Iowa’s agriculture community, even when it meant standing up to her own party.
