Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins says it may not be easy to get a Kansan back on the Agriculture Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. Kansas congressman Tim Huelskamp lost his seat on the committee last week.
Jenkins says the three remaining members of the Kansas House delegation already serve on high-profile committees, like Appropriations or Ways and Means. House rules say if you serve on one of those powerful committees, you can't serve on a second.
She says it would take a waiver for one of them to be allowed to take Huelskamp's place.
