RE: Renegotiating NAFTA: Opportunities for Agriculture

Upon announcing the hearing, Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) issued the following statement:

“As the administration prepares to renegotiate NAFTA, agriculture needs to keep its foot on the gas to ensure their interests are known and reflected in the agreement. The administration has already outlined key objectives for ag, such as expanding market opportunities and tightening enforcement, and I look forward to hearing from our witnesses about opportunities to achieve the best deal possible for American agriculture.”
