WASHINGTON, DC - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says he's not going anywhere.

The former Iowa governor and current head of the U.S.D.A. says he plans to stay in the Obama administration cabinet.

Secretary Vilsack says as Ag Secretary he'll continue to urge Congress to pass a Food, Farm and Jobs bill.

A version of the Farm Bill passed the U.S. Senate but never came up for a vote in the House.

Farmers are now working under an extension that expires at the end of September.
