Agriculture Department Streamlines
The Agriculture Department is moving forward with plans to streamline itself. USDA Secretary Tom Vilsak tells Congress he will put modernization plans into action in 90 days. The agency wants to consolidate 131 Farm Service Agency Offices with other USDA service centers. It plans to close about 260 offices, facilities and labs in total. Vilsack says investment in innovative technologies and business solution is also a big part of the plan to improve service and the customer experience.
