IFPA congratulates Representative Kevin McCarthy (CA-20) on being elected as the Speaker of the House for the 118th Congress. During a process that tested both his patience and determination, his adept leadership persevered and is a testament to the skill with which he will lead the House of Representatives.
Speaker McCarthy has a long history of working with the fresh produce industry, and he is intimately familiar with our members and their most pressing issues.
Hailing from the California Central Valley, Speaker McCarthy has developed close personal relationships with IFPA member leaders that have guided his efforts while in office and will continue to do so as he takes this next step in his political career.
IFPA is eager to continue our work with now Speaker McCarthy and his leadership team on advancing our legislative priorities in the current Congress.
