Ag groups are urging the Senate to swiftly confirm key USDA nominees.
On Thursday the Senate Ag Committee heard testimony from Dr. Jose Emilio Esteban, the Biden administration’s nominee for Under Secretary for Food Safety. He says every American has the right to safe food. “We have one the world’s safest and strongest food safety systems,” he says. “I intend to maintain and enhance that status.” Esteban currently serves in the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
