On behalf of U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Anne Hazlett discussed key findings and recommendations, and the strategies for implementing the recommendations, from the newly released report by the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity.
Created by President Donald Trump in April 2017 and chaired by Secretary Perdue, the Task Force is composed of 22 federal agencies and local leaders. It worked to identify how federal regulations impact agriculture and to develop strategies to bring prosperity back to the nation’s rural communities. Members travelled across the country, holding listening sessions, and gathering recommendations from people living and working in rural America.
