Farmers for Free Trade Statement on Senate Passage of USMCAThu, 16 Jan 2020 13:09:07 CST
Today, Farmers for Free Trade Co-Executive Director, Angela Hofmann released the following statement on Senate passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
“Today’s overwhelmingly bipartisan show of support for North American trade will help restore certainty and predictability in our farmers’ most important markets. USMCA also provides important ag victories including on market access for poultry and dairy, provisions that require science-based decision making on trade, and advances in supporting 21st century agricultural innovations.
“Over the last year, Farmers for Free Trade traveled the country in support of USMCA. In blue states and red states we found the same support for ensuring American farmers can export free of duties or red tape. From the State Fair in Des Moines, Iowa where we hosted a roundtable with Senator Grassley to a townhall meeting in Grass Valley, Oregon where we talked to Senator Wyden, it was clear that sound trade policy came before politics. Our hope is that as we begin work on new trade agreements with Japan, the EU, the UK and others the same bipartisan support for trade policies that open markets for American farmers continues.”
