On Thursday afternoon, the Senate confirmed Greg Ibach to the Department of Agriculture. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts announced the approval of Ibach as the Under Secretary of Agriculture for Marketing and Regulatory Programs at USDA. Ibach previously served as the Nebraska Director of Agriculture. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue welcomes the approval, saying Ibach “will bring experience and integrity to his new role at USDA.” The Senate Agriculture Committee held a hearing regarding Ibach’s nomination earlier this month. He was favorably reported out of the committee with a bipartisan voice vote and has the support of more than 60 farm and conservation organizations.
