Senator Tammy Baldwin will chair the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies. Announced last week, the Wisconsin Democrat says, “I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support farmers, ranchers, and producers.”
Senator Baldwin has served on the Senate Appropriations Committee since 2015, and she will also serve as a member on three other appropriation subcommittees in the Senate. Baldwin says she seeks to “build a stronger and more secure agriculture economy, and get the job done on rural economic development for communities that too often feel they are being left behind by Washington.”
In addition to serving on the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Baldwin serves on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, and the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. However, Baldwin is not a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee.
