SAF Supports Vilsack as Secretary of Agriculture

February 2, 2021 

SAF recently joined over 70 partner organizations in urging support for the confirmation of the Honorable Thomas J. Vilsack to serve as Secretary of Agriculture.

"Our nation is increasingly relying on our forests for solutions to today’s most pressing challenges: climate, drought, biodiversity protection, strong markets for paper and wood products, economic challenges in rural communities. We need a proven leader like Secretary Vilsack who is more than capable of successfully leading the Department to tackle these challenges in ways that are good for our forests, forest products, rural forested communities, and rural workers." 

The nomination hearing is set for February 2, 2021 at 10:30 AM ET. To view the recording, click here.
