The U.S. Senate Friday afternoon confirmed Dr. Richard Raymond as Under Secretary for Food Safety at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The unanimous vote was welcomed by fellow Nebraskan, USDA Secretary Mike Johanns.

In a statement released Friday afternoon, Johanns said: "I am very pleased to welcome Dr. Raymond to the USDA team. He played an important role in efforts to protect Nebraska's food supply from terrorist threats and he brings that valuable insight to USDA. His leadership skills and keen ability to garner cooperation among stakeholders will serve the President and our department well in fulfilling the Food Safety and Inspection Service's mission to safeguard meat, poultry and egg products."
