Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway has announced that Rep. Trent Kelly (MS-1) will join the committee. Rep. Kelly will serve on the Livestock and Foreign Agriculture Subcommittee as well as the Commodity Exchanges, Energy and Credit Subcommittee. 
“Agriculture is vital to the economy in the State of Mississippi, and I am proud to have the opportunity to represent the First District on the House Committee on Agriculture,” said Congressman Kelly.  “I look forward to being a voice for Mississippi on the Livestock and Foreign Agriculture, and the Commodity Exchanges, Energy, and Credit Subcommittees to promote policies that encourage rural development and allow the agriculture industry to grow. I thank Chairman Conaway for this opportunity and I look forward to working with him and the members of the committee.” 
“I look forward to Rep. Kelly joining us on the Agriculture Committee,” said Conaway. “With more than 37,000 farms in Mississippi covering 10.9 million acres, Trent will be a strong voice for agriculture in his home state. We have a very diverse team with unique backgrounds and districts, and I know Trent’s distinguished experience as a District Attorney and Mississippi Army National Guard Colonel will be a great asset to this committee.”
