KSCB News - January 9, 2015 8:25 am

In a much anticipated announcement, today Kansas Senator Pat Roberts was named chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee. Kansas Agriculture Secretary Jackie McClaskey praised the appointment.

“This is good news for Kansas farmers and ranchers. Pat Roberts understands the importance of agriculture to our great state and will work tirelessly to make sure that the Federal government does not get in the way of farm families who are working to produce the safest, most abundant food supply in the world.”

McClaskey looks forward to working with the Senator on issues important to the state. “There are a number of pressing concerns for those in agriculture, including the on-going pressure of excess regulation from various agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency. It is great to have Sen. Roberts in this leadership position advocating for our state’s largest industry.
