| Thanks to blogger Count for finding this. Remember the Horticulture and Organic Sub-Committee in the House Ag Committee? The Republicans have renamed it. It's now the "Horticulture and Nutrition" Sub-Committee. The jurisdiction used to be described as:
Fruits and vegetables, honey and bees, marketing and promotion orders, plant pesticides, quarantine, adulteration of seeds, and insect pests, and organic agriculture.
It is now:
Food stamps, nutrition and consumer programs, fruits and vegetables, honey and bees, marketing and promotion orders, plant pesticides, quarantine, adulteration of seeds and insect pests, and organic agriculture.
That is an absolute TON of stuff to cram into one committee, compared to what there was in the past.
The Subcommittee on Conservation, Credit, Energy, and Research has been renamed "Subcommittee on Conservation, Energy, and Forestry."
The Subcommittee on Department Operations, Oversight, Nutrition, and Forestry is now the "Subcommittee on Department Operations, Oversight, and Credit"
The Subcommittee on Rural Development, Biotechnology, Specialty Crops, and Foreign Agriculture is now the "Subcommittee on Rural Development, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture"
The Subcommittee on General Farm Commodities and Risk Management and the Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry remain the same.
