The House Republican Conference reelected Congressman Frank Lucas (R-OK) to serve a second term as chairman of the Agriculture Committee for the 113th Congress. Lucas said, “I am proud of the work the committee has completed over the past two years. We have provided valuable oversight of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Environmental Protection Agency to ensure that our agricultural producers are not burdened with unreasonable and costly regulations.”
