Anne Hazlett Appointed Chief Counsel, Senate Ag Committee

We are delighted to announce that our LL.M. Program alumna, Anne Hazlett, has been selected as Chief Counsel for the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry.

U.S. Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) Chairman of the Committee announced her appointment along with the appointment of other Committee hires last week.

“I am proud to add people with experience in farming, ranching and agriculture policymaking to the staff,” Roberts said. “Our team is now complete and we look forward to our first hearing at the end of the month.”

Anne is a natural selection for this important position, as her resume includes a long list of agricultural law accomplishments and years of policymaking experience. She has served as Republican Chief Counsel on the Senate Agriculture Committee since 2009. Prior to that position, Anne served as the Director of Agriculture for her home state of Indiana and served as Chief of Staff to Indiana Lt. Governor Becky Skillman.

During the development of both the 2002 and 2008 Farm bills, Anne worked as legal counsel to the U.S. House and Senate Agriculture Committees.

Beyond her government service, Anne has also worked for several agricultural interest organizations, including the Indiana and California Farm Bureaus.

Anne graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Communications.  She earned her law degree from the Indiana University School of Law at Indianapolis and her LL.M. degree in Agricultural Law from our Program.

Congratulations, Anne!
