Tom Vilsack testified before the Senate Agriculture Committee on his nomination for secretary of agriculture in the Biden administration. Topics included the administration’s push for more electric vehicles on the roads, climate change, food insecurity, and coronavirus pandemic assistance. Mr. Vilsack served in the same position for eight years under former President Obama.

The Agriculture Committee convened this hearing despite having no committee chair, due to the retirement of Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) at the end of the 116th Congress. Because the Senate was split evenly between Democrats and Republicans for the 117th Congress, and because the Senate had not yet passed a power-sharing resolution allowing for the committees to organize for the new Congress, Senate committees remained frozen from the previous Congress. close
