Last week, the House Agriculture Committee’s summer Congressional interns delivered their final presentations to showcase the policy areas they became most interested in during their internship. Hope Theisen of North Dakota State University gave an insightful presentation over the sugar industry and the policies that affect it. Nolan Smith of Texas Tech University shared his insight on the significance of forestry conservation and the regulatory burdens that create obstacles in preventing forest fires. Lastly, Kaley Mathis of Texas A&M University discussed the crisis in cotton country from her perspective of growing up within the cotton industry. These students have worked hard this summer, and I am excited to see the outstanding achievements each of these remarkable young people will accomplish in the future. We appreciate all your hard work this summer, and we hope you continue your passion for agriculture at home!
