Glen Smith, of Atlantic, will now serve on the Farm Credit Administration Board. U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan. announced his confirmation by the full Senate Tuesday evening. Ranking member Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., was also satisfied.
“Once again, we’re pleased to report full Senate confirmation of another qualified nominee,” Roberts and Stabenow said. “As an active farmer and agribusiness professional, Mr. Smith has the skillset and background needed to serve rural America in this role. As with all previous nominees, the Senate Agriculture Committee worked in a bipartisan fashion to get Mr. Smith to work at the Farm Credit Administration.”
The Senate Agriculture Committee held a hearing on the nominee on Nov. 9. Smith was favorably reported out of the committee with a bipartisan voice vote.
