NSP Applauds House of Representatives for Advancing U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Dec. 19, 2019) — National Sorghum Producers Chairman Dan Atkisson, a sorghum farmer from Stockton, Kansas, made the following statement today after the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 385-41.
“USMCA provides a needed level of certainty for U.S. farmers and ranchers, and National Sorghum Producers appreciates the tenacity of our Administration, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and Congressional leaders to ensure American ag producers have a trade win to close out a very difficult year 2019. Passage in the House brings this deal one step closer to the finish line, and we encourage the Senate to follow early in the new year, so the agreement may be enacted as soon as possible.”
