Today, Rep. Cindy Axne (IA-03) issued the following statement on Tom Vilsack’s confirmation as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture: 

“I want to extend a sincere congratulations to Secretary Tom Vilsack on his successful and overwhelming bipartisan confirmation as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 

Our rural communities have suffered too much in the last four years – from trade wars to abuse of the Renewable Fuel Standard – we need national leadership that will support rural America and expand economic opportunity to all.

Secretary Vilsack will be that leader and serve as a critical voice for rural America. I look forward to continuing our work together to serve Iowa’s farmers and rural communities.
