Senate Agriculture Committee Advances Bronaugh for Deputy Agriculture Secretary

Tue, 11 May 2021 09:38:12 CDT

Senate Agriculture Committee Advances Bronaugh for Deputy Agriculture Secretary U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, and John Boozman (R-Ark.), Ranking Member, today announced the Committee voted by voice vote to advance Dr. Jewel H. Bronaugh to serve as Deputy Secretary of Agriculture. Dr. Bronaugh may now be considered by the full U.S. Senate for confirmation.

“I’m pleased our Committee worked together on a bipartisan basis to move Dr. Bronaugh’s historic nomination forward,” said Chairwoman Stabenow. “It is clear Dr. Bronaugh is a highly qualified leader who has strong experience working on the ground to support our farmers, families, and rural communities.”

“Dr. Bronaugh has shown to be a true leader in agriculture throughout her career in education and public service. She has the experience to handle the significant responsibilities that come with being second in charge at USDA. I am confident she will operate in a manner that values the special relationship between Congress and the department. Dr. Bronaugh is now just one step away from making history as the first African American woman to serve as deputy secretary at USDA. I encourage quick confirmation of her nomination to make that happen,” Ranking Member Boozman said.

The Senate Agriculture Committee held a hearing on Deputy Secretary Bronaugh’s nomination on April 22, 2021.
