Peterson, Group of Bipartisan Members of Congress Urge Enforcement of Dairy Provisions in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement

Washington, August 13, 2020

WASHINGTON (August 13, 2020)- House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin C. Peterson of Minnesota led a letter along with Reps. Kind, Reed, Thompson (PA), Brindisi, Fulcher, Torres Small, and Gonzalez (OH) on the implementation of dairy provisions in the USMCA. The letter was signed by 104 Members of Congress.

“As we see the USMCA dairy provisions implemented, we expect Canada and Mexico to be held accountable for their commitments to ensure our dairy farmers have a more level playing field,” said Peterson. “I’m proud to work with Reps. Kind, Reed, Thompson (PA), Brindisi, Fulcher, Torres Small, and Gonzalez (OH) on this important issue. After a tough past few years, American dairy farmers need this agreement fully enforced, and I remain hopeful that the strong bipartisan support shown in this letter, and our partnership with the Administration, will provide some stability for the sector into the future.”
