Combs Confirmation Just What Farmers and Ranchers Need

Newsroom / June 6, 2019

The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall: “Susan Combs will make a strong Assistant Secretary of Policy, Management, and Budget at the U.S. Department of the Interior. She brings a powerful resume to the office. Assistant Secretary Combs showed effective leadership and experience as a Texas state representative. She was also Texas’ first female Agriculture Commissioner and Texas State Comptroller, too. This deep experience makes her well suited to provide key management and direction at DOI. We look forward to working with her as she strives to streamline agency operations, reduce regulatory burdens for farmers, ranchers, and landowners and increase transparency in the federal decision-making process.”
