(SD)-Johnson Named Ranking Republican On House Ag Subcommittee

By: John Axtell Posted at: 02/01/2019 01:04 PM
 South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson has been named the top Republican on a House Agriculture Committee panel, the Subcommittee on Nutrition, Oversight and Department Operations.

      Johnson, who's been in office as South Dakota's lone member of the House for less than a month, says the assignment is unexpected, but that he really worked to get it.

      He feels the subcommittee is a very important because it will oversee implementation of the new fam bill, so he'll be able to put South Dakota at the front lines of making sure the farm bill is as "good in practice as it was in promise."

      The panel also oversees food stamps, now officially named SNAP - the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
