Members of the House Agriculture Committee have been named by both parties in Washington, D.C. Republicans will serve in the majority of both House and Senate, and therefore will hold the chair and majority in every committee. 

There will be 25 Republicans, the same as last session, and 19 Democrats, 3 fewer than last Congress. That brings the total to 44 Committee members, of which 6 Democrats are new.
