Welcome to the Agriculture Committee in the House of Representatives! My name is Bryant Yang and I am looking forward to chairing the House Agriculture committee this year. This will be my second time chairing this committee, and I’m beyond excited to welcome you all to this dynamic sphere of U.S. policymaking.
As members of this committee, you will have the chance to explore some of the most important and divisive issues facing the country today. The House Agriculture committee occupies a unique place in Congress as it oversees the industry that is guaranteed to touch the lives of every American. Additionally, our role as one of the largest exporters of food means there’s also enormous implications on foreign policy by being a member of this committee. Your decisions will have a huge impact domestically and abroad!
Beyond committee, Harvard Model Congress is an opportunity to meet students from all over the country. There will be a wide variety of political opinions at the conference and I hope you take this chance to learn more about others and yourselves. Additionally, HMC is an amazing time to explore Boston and the Harvard campus!
As your chair, I am looking forward to making your HMC experience a time to step a little outside you comfort zone, learn a lot, and have a lot of fun!
If you have any questions at all or just want to introduce yourself, please don’t hesitate to contact me. In the meantime, pay attention to current events and the news to make sure you are as prepared as possible for the conference. I can’t wait to meet all of you and hope you are as excited for the conference as I am!
