The Trump Administration has released details on its plan to reorganize government. If realized, USDA would see big changes. The proposal would shift government nutrition programs to Health and Human Services. It would shift housing loan guarantees to Housing and Urban Development. The Fish and Wildlife Service would be moved into the Department of the Interior. A new federal food safety agency would also be created, combining programs done at USDA, FDA and HHS into one agency overseen by the Agriculture Department. The proposal was widely praised within the Administration but is being criticized in Congress.
