The nation has a new agriculture secretary. The U-S senate voted Monday to confirm former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue to lead the Department of Agriculture.  For three months, the department that handles farm programs and rural development has been without a leader.  As Harvest Public Media’s Amy Mayer reports, Perdue will have a lot of work ahead of him.
