    Roberts held the same position in the mid-90s on the House side when he was a congressman. Since the current committee structure was adopted, Roberts is the first in history to chair both the Senate Agriculture Committee and the House Agriculture Committee.

    Roberts also becomes the first in history to chair and serve as the ranking member for both Agriculture Committees. Roberts’ priorities will include oversight of USDA programs and policies and further hearings on Farm Bill implementation.
