Iowa Ag Secretary Waits Patiently for USDA Appointment Vote
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Over three months after being appointed to a USDA post by Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue, an easy confirmation and unanimous Senate committee vote, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey tells Agriculture.com that he remains hopeful to get a vote.
Meanwhile, the clock is ticking on Secretary Northey to file reelection papers for the state post he currently holds, if the USDA appointment doesn’t come through.
