Tester congratulates Anita Matt for FSA State Committee appointment

(U.S. SENATE)-Senator Jon Tester released the following statement after U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack appointed Anita Matt to the USDA Farm Service Agency State Committee in Montana:

“Anita Matt is committed to improving agriculture and helping producers across Montana. Her career of public service for the CSKT tribal government combined with over three decades of ranching on the Flathead Indian Reservation makes her a strong resource for families in rural Montana. I want to congratulate Anita for her well-deserved recognition.”

The FSA State Committee provides oversight for the agency, including FSA’s agricultural programs, resolving appeals from the agricultural producers, and helping to keep farmers and ranchers informed about FSA programs.

Matt joins Committee members Steve Carney, of Scobey, who serves as committee chair, Floyd Dahlman, of Forsyth, Kelly Flaherty-Settle, of Canyon Creek, and Patricia Quisno, of Fort Belknap.
