Statement from Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on the Senate Confirmation of Darci Vetter as Chief Agricultural Negotiator

WASHINGTON, July 10, 2014—U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack today made the following statement on the Senate Confirmation of Darci Vetter as U.S. Chief Agricultural Negotiator:

"I am pleased that America's farmers, ranchers and rural communities will continue to benefit from Darci's experience and background in her new role as U.S. Chief Agricultural Negotiator. As Deputy Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services, she helped to facilitate record food and farm exports that supported nearly one million jobs here at home and expanded opportunity in rural communities. I have no doubt that Darci will continue to be a valuable advocate for rural America."
