“Thank you Mr. Chairman. And I’d like to welcome today’s witnesses to the Agriculture Committee.

A strong agriculture sector and stable food supply is critical to national security. And agriculture has an important role to play when it comes to our country’s national security interests, something I don’t think a lot of people really understand.

Today’s hearing will allow us to examine the threats and any vulnerability to agriculture and the economic impact these could have. I have particular interest in HPAI and look forward to discussing this and other threats.

“Thank you Chairman Conaway.

“I'm pleased that we can follow up on what I thought was a good discussion in June. As I said then, I think we need to keep a close eye on how other countries subsidize agriculture. This is especially important to keep in mind during our debates on the farm safety net. We need a level playing field if we are going to be competitive in a global market.
