House Agriculture Committee Chairman Michael Conaway, R-Texas, on Wednesday announced the names of new members of the House Agriculture Committee and a full roster of Republican members.
Among the six new members is Roger Marshall, the Kansas House member who defeated Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., in a primary.
