I have the great honor of serving on the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which is the authorizing committee for most farming, conservation and nutrition programs.
In addition, I serve as the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Rural Development and Energy, which oversees numerous programs in the rural development mission of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), including economic recovery as well as job and business growth; telecommunications and utilities; electrification; loans; housing; and improving renewable energy and energy efficiency for farms and ranches.
From my work to scrap the burdensome Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule, to upholding the integrity of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) for Iowa farmers and biofuel producers, my office and I are here to serve you.
The links below include more information on resources and programs available to Iowa farmers, producers, and landowners.
