Congressman Zach Nunn Selected for House Committee on Agriculture

Washington, D.C. – Representative Zach Nunn (IA-03) today issued the following statement after announcing his appointment to the House Committee on Agriculture for the 118th Congress. The House Committee on Agriculture is an influential committee that focuses on American agriculture, energy, conservation, farm commodities, biotechnology, research, livestock and more.

On the Committee, Rep. Nunn will have substantial influence in crafting the Farm Bill, which is renewed once every five years to address agriculture and food issues facing our country. The Farm Bill was last passed in 2018 and is due to be reauthorized in 2023.

Rep. Nunn is a sixth generation Iowan that comes from a small, family-operated Century Farm growing corn and soybeans. On the farm, Rep. Nunn helped to raise sheep, poultry and hogs.

“Iowa has a big voice when it comes to agriculture, and I couldn’t be more honored to be selected to serve on the House Agriculture Committee,” said Rep. Nunn. “We have a big agenda with renewing the Farm Bill. It’ll be my job to listen to our farmers and producers so I can convey what Iowans want included in the bill. Along with the Farm Bill, my top priorities will include fighting back against the federal government’s regulatory assault of farm country, addressing record inflation and high input costs, fixing supply chain woes, combatting China and resolving an unfair trade environment. Iowa – I’m excited to get to work on behalf of our farm families who feed and fuel the world!”

Last week, Rep. Nunn was also selected to serve on the Financial Services Committee. Securing seats on both of these highly influential committees is extremely rare for a freshman Member of Congress.
