WASHINGTON - House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin C. Peterson of Minnesota issued the following statement on the passing of former Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman, Senator Thad Cochran:

“Chairman Cochran was a gentleman to all who knew and worked with him, but his calm demeanor belied a skilled legislator who represented his state well.
