Washington, D.C. (July 13, 2017) –Steve Censky, CEO of the American Soybean Association, has been nominated by President Donald Trump as Deputy Secretary of Agriculture at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“NAWG extends our congratulations to Steve Censky on his nomination for Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture,” stated Chandler Goule, CEO of the National Association of Wheat Growers. “His experience as a farmer and vast understanding of agriculture sector make him an ideal candidate for this role.”

“I’ve worked with Steve for years and over the last year as a fellow commodity organization CEO. I have seen firsthand his dedication to American agriculture,” stated Goule. “He is an aggressive advocate for farmers and truly understands how important international trade is to the ag economy, and how critical a strong crop insurance program is for farmers to farm another year when they experience a weather or economic storm.”

“NAWG urges the U.S Senate to quickly take up his nomination and confirm his appointment before the August recess.
