Ranking Member Stabenow Applauds Senate Confirmation of Farm Credit Administration Nominees

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today applauded Senate confirmation of Dallas Tonsager and Jeffrey Hall to the board of the Farm Credit Administration (FCA). The nominees were confirmed by voice vote.

“The Farm Credit System supports rural communities in all corners of the country,” said Stabenow. “I look forward to working with both Mr. Tonsager and Mr. Hall – and the entire Farm Credit System – as we work to implement policies that grow the farm sector, support rural businesses, get new and beginning farmers and ranchers on their feet, and bolster rural America.”

The Farm Credit Administration regulates and examines banks, associations, and other entities within the Farm Credit System (FCS) – including the Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (Farmer Mac). The FCA is governed by a three-person board, the members of which that serve six-year terms and may not be reappointed after serving full terms.
