TOPEKA, Kan. (KAKE) - On Monday June 13, Representative Sharice Davids was recommended to serve on the House Agriculture Committee by the House Democratic Steering & Policy Committee.

She is also Vice Chair of the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and on the Small Business Committee, chairing the Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax, and Capital Access.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve Kansans on the Agriculture Committee, especially as we gear up to consider the next Farm Bill. Kansas farms are often small businesses who play a vital role in our state’s economy, history, and future,” said Davids. “I look forward to the chance to work on the major issues facing farmers and ranchers in our state, including reducing costs and expanding into new markets for our world-class agricultural products.”

“I’m pleased to see Rep. Sharice Davids has been assigned to the House Agriculture Committee for the remainder of this session. Kansas City and the surrounding region has a long and storied history in production agriculture and agribusiness, and I know Rep. Davids will be a strong voice on the committee for her constituents and Kansas agriculture,” said Rich Felts, President of Kansas Farm Bureau.
