NCGA Expresses Support for Alexis Taylor Nomination After Ag Senate Meeting

Fri, 23 Sep 2022 08:13:12 CDT

NCGA Expresses Support for Alexis Taylor Nomination After Ag Senate Meeting The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) praised the credentials of Alexis Taylor today and encouraged the Senate to act quickly to confirm her as undersecretary for trade and U.S. agricultural affairs at USDA.


NCGA’s comments came after Taylor testified before the Senate Agriculture Committee as it considers her nomination.


“Alexis is someone with a deep understanding of agriculture, and she is widely respected by policymakers on both sides of the aisle,” said Brooke S. Appleton, vice president of public policy at the National Corn Growers Association. “We are very excited by the prospect of having someone of Alexis’s caliber serving in this role.”



During her testimony, the nominee told the committee that “ag is not just what I do, but who I am.”


Taylor, who currently serves as director of the Oregon Department of Agriculture, has served as a policy expert on ag issues for several members of Congress and managed the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services. An Iraq veteran, Taylor grew up in Iowa on her family’s 160-year-old farm.



Once approved by the committee, Taylor’s nomination will move to the Senate floor for a vote. NCGA encourages swift approval of her nomination.
