Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today named William J. Murphy as Administrator of USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA). “Bill has spent nearly three decades in the Federal crop insurance community and he brings valuable hands-on expertise and executive management to the USDA’s leadership team,” Vilsack said. “His expansive program experience and knowledge of the agency’s responsibilities will be invaluable as President Obama and I work to assure the soundness of the safety net for American farmers and ranchers.”
