KEN ACKERMAN, counsel to the law firm of Olsson Frank Weeda Terman Bode Matz in Washington, DC, is a 25-year veteran of senior positions in Congress, the executive branch, and financial regulation. As administrator of USDA's Risk Management Agency from 1993-201, Mr. Ackerman headed the federal crop insurance program that provides coverage to over 1 million American farm producers under a public-private partnership. In 1994 and 2000, he spearheaded the Clinton administration efforts to upgrade the program through major legislative reforms.
Mr. Ackerman served two tours in the U.S. Senate, first as counsel to the Committee on Governmental Affairs (1975-1981) under then-Senator Charles H. Percy of Illinois, and later as special counsel to the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry (1988-1993) under its then-chairman Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont. In between, he held senior legal positions at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which regulates markets in physical commodities and financial derivatives.
During his career, Mr. Ackerman has testified at dozens of congressional hearings, investigated and developed legislation on topics from budget reconciliation to farm policy to electronic eavesdropping to civil service reform to financial market oversight. He has appeared before the media and public groups including the National Association of Farm Broadcasters, CNN, National Public Radio, AgDay television, AgriTalk radio, bar associations, and government officials in London, Warsaw, Vienna, and Tel Aviv.
Mr. Ackerman has published many articles and three books on legal and historical topics including Young J. Edgar: Hoover, the Red Scare, and the Assault on Civil Liberties, Boss Tweed: The Rise and Fall of the Corrupt Pol Who Conceived the Soul of Modern New York, The Gold Ring: Jim Fisk, Jay Gould, and Black Friday 1869 and The Dark Horse: The Surprise Election and Political Murder of President James A. Garfield. He was profiled in Government Executive magazine in 1997 and included by National Journal that year in its "Washington 100" list of top federal decision-makers. He is a graduate of Brown University and Georgetown University Law Center.
He is the author of the Federal Regulatory Process Poster (TheCapitol.Net).
