WASHINGTON – Chairman Frank Lucas spoke on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in support of the free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea. The agreements will open more than $2.5 billion in new market access for America's farmers and ranchers. Agricultural exports support approximately 1 million jobs in industries including processing, manufacturing, and transportation. Increased market access from the free trade agreements will create jobs throughout the economy—both on and off the farm.
