AUSTIN --- Representative Charles "Doc" Anderson (District 56, Waco) was appointed to another two-year term on the statewide Agriculture Policy Board by House Speaker Tom Craddick. Originally appointed in 2005 for a term expiring at the end of August this year, this appointment is for a full two-year term through August 31, 2009.

"I appreciate the confidence of Speaker Craddick to represent the interests and the livelihoods of the many Texans who depend on sound agricultural policies so that they can continue their work as the backbone of Texas," Rep. Anderson said.

Speaker Craddick noted Rep. Anderson's long-time commitment to agricultural interests and the small businesses that dominate the industry. "Your expertise in agriculture and your experience as a long-time resident in a predominately rural and agriculturally-oriented area of Texas are valuable to the activities of the Board," Speaker Craddick said.

The Agriculture Policy Board is a statewide policy review and advocacy group of elected officials which recommend strategies for agriculture that enhance agriculture production, income, and employment; that benefit consumers; and that promote efficient and sustainable use of natural resources. It is chaired by Commissioner of Agriculture Todd Staples.

Rep. Anderson, a Waco veterinarian, has also been appointed by Speaker Craddick to the Energy Council, a multi-state policy group, and the National Conference of State Legislatures Committee on Agriculture, Energy, and the Environment, in addition to his regular service in the Texas House on the Financial Institutions Committee, House Administration Committee, and as Vice-Chair of the Agriculture and Livestock Committee.
