U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-3rd Dist., has been named vice chair of the Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee.
Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers announced the members who will serve as vice chairs of the 12 appropriations subcommittees for the 113th Congress.
These members will serve as chair of the subcommittee in the absence of the chairperson, and assist them in official committee duties.
“I am pleased to be named vice chair of the Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee," Rep. Yoder said in a statement. "As a fifth-generation Kansan who grew up on a small family farm, I recognize and value Kansas’ deep and rich farming history. Agriculture issues touch every corner of our state, and I look forward to working with farmers and ranchers all across Kansas on agriculture appropriations issues that matter to them.”
