Trevino No Longer Nominee for U.S. Chief Ag Negotiator

President Biden’s Nominee for Chief Agriculture Negotiator, Elaine Trevino, decided to not move forward with the confirmation process. Trevino was nominated six months ago but had not gone through the Senate confirmation process. According to Politico, Trevino sent Biden a letter that said it now seems clear there’s no timely path forward to gain Senate confirmation and that she was excited to join the administration in another capacity working on ag supply chain issues. Trevino may still be appointed to a non-Senate confirmed post.
