A new executive order by President Donald Trump is set to create a panel to look at different agricultural issues. Special Assistant to President Trump on Agricultural Issues Ray Starling says this new executive order will effectively replace the White House Rural Council started under President Barrack Obama in 2011. Trump’s new task force will look at legislative, regulatory, and policy issues that hinder economic growth in the agricultural sector. The executive order was signed during a round-table discussion attended by farmers and ranchers earlier this week. Agricultural Secretary Sonny Purdue was in attendance. Starling says the new task force will help to promote agriculture, economic development, job growth, infrastructure improvements, technological innovation, energy security, and quality of life for rural America. President Trump is expecting his first report within 180 days of the task force’s inception.
