Other democrat members are not yet announced.

The top issue for the committee this year is the Farm Bill. Ranking Member Scott says he sees five priorities for the bill, including expanding rural broadband; making the 1890 Land Grant African American College and Universities Student Scholarship Program permanent and add an additional $100 million in funding; Assist small family cattle farmers and ranchers; Defend and protect SNAP and nutrition programs; and help producers combat dramatic changes in weather patterns and climate.
