SACRAMENTO It is with mixed emotions that I greet the news that Secretary Johanns has resigned from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Secretary Johanns has been a powerful advocate for farming in this country and for farm bill reform. He has been a tremendous friend to California during our multitude of weather disasters and invasive pest emergencies. While I will miss his good counsel and wisdom, I wish him the best of luck in his race for U.S. Senate in Nebraska.
