Background
The Senate Agriculture Committee is the most current Senate committee overseeing legislation on agricultural issues. According to 2004 Senate Resolution 4, it replaced the Senate Agriculture and Water Resources Committee in this capacity, while legislation relating to water was taken over by the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee. The Senate Agriculture Committee consists of 5 members. During the 2009-2010 legislative session, Senate Resolution 12 officially expanded the focus of this committee to include “food processing and marketing,” while also renaming it to the Senate Food and Agriculture Committee.
