DES MOINES, Iowa (Feb. 23, 2021) – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig issued the following statement today in response to Secretary Tom Vilsack’s confirmation as the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.
“Having an Iowan at the helm of USDA is positive for our state’s agriculture community. Secretary Vilsack will be able to hit the ground running given his previous experience as agriculture secretary, and being a former Governor, he understands the partnership between states and the federal government. I look forward to working alongside Secretary Vilsack to continue to grow demand for renewable fuels, prevent foreign animal diseases, advance water quality and soil health, promote international trade and support investments in rural America.”
