Kat Cammack Announces Agriculture Subcommittee Assignments

On Monday, U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., announced she will serve on two subcommittees under the U.S. House Agriculture Committee umbrella.

Cammack will be on the U.S. House Commodity Exchanges, Energy and Credit and the Nutrition, Oversight and Department Operations Subcommittees.

“The Commodity Exchanges, Energy and Credit Subcommittee has jurisdiction over commodity exchanges; agricultural credit; rural development; energy; and rural electrification. The Nutrition, Oversight and Department Operations Subcommittee has jurisdiction over nutrition policies and domestic commodity distribution,” the congresswoman’s office noted.

“I’m honored to serve on these two esteemed subcommittees this Congress. Agriculture is critically important to the state of Florida, having served as our number one economic driver in 2020,” said Cammack. “As a member of these subcommittees, I’ll work to support the constituents of Florida’s Third Congressional District and look forward to supporting the Sunshine State’s farmers, ranchers, and producers.

“The Agriculture Committee has jurisdiction over rural broadband and I’m proud to make this a top priority this Congress,” she added.

First elected to Congress in November after her longtime boss then U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., retired, Cammack represents parts of North Florida ranging from Clay County outside of Jacksonville to Gainesville and the northern part of Marion County.
