Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has issued the following statement on the resignation of EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson from President Obama's cabinet:
"Lisa Jackson has served our country well as she balanced improving the environment and the health of the American people – while ensuring our country's economic competitiveness – because they are intrinsically linked. Throughout her tenure, she listened to stakeholders, including farmers and ranchers, and took their concerns into account while considering policies that impacted rural America. She was a friend to me and to those who live and work in rural America and her leadership will be missed."
