A news release yesterday from Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND) stated that, “[Sen. Conrad] announced today that Jim Miller, Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Service at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), will return to his staff next month as a senior aide leading his negotiations on the next Farm Bill.
“‘Jim Miller is one of the best. He is deeply committed to farmers and ranchers and America’s rural communities. His encyclopedic knowledge of ag policy has only increased while at USDA. I am fortunate to have him come back to my staff and put that experience and knowledge to work helping craft a new Farm Bill,’ Senator Conrad said.”
