The Senate confirmed former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tuesday.


Vilsack was among five of President Obama’s cabinet nominees to be approved by a unanimous vote hours after Obama took office.


One of Vilsack’s first priorities will be putting the $290 billion farm bill, enacted last year, into place.
