We have a great deal of work to do, including implementing and protecting the new farm bill, continuing to press for a rollback of harmful regulations that hurt our farmers and ranchers, and leveling the global playing field to create more market access for U.S. agriculture products. I'm confident in the team we have assembled, and I look forward to working alongside my new colleagues in championing rural America and our country's farm and ranch families."

With the number of Republicans on the committee reduced, three members will not return: Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., a former chairman of the committee; Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio; Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala.; and Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who has lost all his committee assignments due to his controversial comments about race and white supremacy.
