House Agriculture Committee Republican Leader Glenn “GT” Thompson issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s nomination of Alexis Taylor to serve as the Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of Agriculture:
"While I would have preferred to see this nomination much sooner, I am pleased President Biden has selected Alexis Taylor to serve as the Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs. This position is immensely helpful to our producers, will expand market access and trade promotion opportunities, and can assist the Administration in navigating the unyielding global supply chain crisis. Today’s announcement is one step of many needed to demonstrate this Administration prioritizes trade. I urge the Senate to move expeditiously with the confirmation process and look forward to working with Ms. Taylor."
