Moran, Blunt to Lead Key Subcommittee on Senate Appropriations Panel

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran has been named the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and related agencies.
“Farmers and ranchers provide the food, fuel and fiber for our growing world and are the economic drivers of communities and local businesses across Kansas. Regardless of our job or where we live, agriculture matters to all of us. As chairman of the Senate Appropriations Agriculture Subcommittee, I welcome the opportunity to focus on investing in policies that are vital to Kansas farmers and ranchers, such as agriculture research and extension and Farm Bill implementation,”Moran said in a statement.
Missouri Republican Senator Roy Blunt was also named a Subcommittee Chairman for the Appropriations Labor, Health & Human Service, Education panel.
“I’m pleased to lead this subcommittee, which oversees one-third of all non-defense discretionary spending in the federal government,” said Blunt. “Almost all of the president’s health care law is paid for by mandatory spending, and therefore falls under the jurisdiction of the Senate Finance Committee. However, this subcommittee will have a chance to directly address some of the most pressing issues brought forth by ObamaCare, including the administration’s proposed cuts to cancer screenings and immunization programs.”
