ND Delegation: Administration Appoints Marcy Svenningsen as ND FSA Executive Director

WASHINGTON – Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer and Congressman Kelly Armstrong today issued the following statements after the administration announced the appointment of Marcy Svenningsen as Farm Service Agency (FSA) state executive director for North Dakota.  

“The FSA provides vital services to farmers, ranchers and rural communities across North Dakota, and in particular, this agency plays an essential role in our efforts to help producers recover from recent natural disasters, like severe drought,” said Senator Hoeven, ranking member of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Committee and member of the Senate Agriculture Committee. “We look forward to meeting with Marcy to discuss the needs of our producers and the critical work ahead to ensure their continued success.” 

“The state executive director position for the Farm Service Agency plays a critical role in implementing policy, administering loan programs, and promoting conservation, commodity, disaster, and farm marketing programs in the state. North Dakota’s agricultural producers have faced tremendous challenges in recent years with poor weather, trade disruptions, and supply chain breakdowns. The Farm Service Agency provides North Dakota’s farmers and ranchers critical assistance on time-sensitive matters. I look forward to meeting with her and hearing ideas on how to improve their responsiveness to farmers’ needs,” said Senator Cramer. 

“The Farm Service Agency plays a critical role in connecting North Dakota’s agriculture producers with federal resources,” said Congressman Armstrong. “We look forward to working with Marcy to ensure farmers and ranchers have access to FSA’s programs.”
