Wayne Stoskopf has joined NCGA’s Washington, D.C. office as Director for Public Policy for Risk Management and Tax. Stoskopf will also serve as lead staff for the Risk Management and Transportation Team.


Stoskopf comes to NCGA from the Senate Agriculture Committee where, as Senior Professional Staff, he oversaw commodity programs, crop insurance, disaster, and grain standards programs. He led staff-level negotiations for the commodities and crop insurance titles of the 2018 Farm Bill.


“Wayne is a great addition to the NCGA DC team,” said NCGA Vice President of Public Policy Brooke Appleton. “He brings vital Capitol Hill experience to the role and will lead the association's efforts on the next farm bill.”


Prior to his work on the Senate Agriculture Committee, Stoskopf served as a Legislative Assistant for U.S. Senator Pat Roberts and U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, handling agriculture issues for both offices. Wayne was raised on his family’s farm near Hoisington, Kansas and graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in Agribusiness.
