National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) reports:

National Corn Growers Association President and Texas farmer Wesley Spurlock welcomed the announcement yesterday that American Soybean Association Chief Executive Officer Stephen L. Censky has been nominated as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

"The National Corn Growers Association congratulates Steve Censky on his nomination to be Deputy Secretary at USDA. With experience leading a large commodity organization, and as a senior leader at USDA and Capitol Hill staffer, Steve is the perfect person to serve as second in command at USDA. We urge the Senate to move quickly to confirm him.

"Steve knows firsthand the importance of increasing global demand for U.S. agricultural products, growing the renewable fuels industry, and protecting risk management programs. His background and experience are especially welcome as we begin to shape the next farm bill.

"Two weeks ago, we called on President Trump to move quickly to fill out the entire leadership team at USDA. With the rural economy struggling, USDA needs a full leadership team to serve the interests of farmers, ranchers, and consumers. We're pleased to see a strong, experienced Deputy nominated today. We urge the President to continue moving forward with other USDA nominations."
