Concannon tabbed for U.S. Department of Agriculture position

DES MOINES (KWWL)-- A former Iowa Department of Human Services director will again serve alongside Tom Vilsack, this time on the national level.

The White House says President Barack Obama intends to nominate Kevin Concannon to oversee federal nutrition programs for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

If confirmed, Concannon would manage food stamp and school lunch programs.

He previously served on Vilsack's governor's staff from 2003 to 2007.
