Rouzer, Conaway: Expanded Trade Access Critical to America’s Farmers, Ranchers
Washington, March 10, 2020
Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Agriculture Committee’s Livestock and Foreign Agriculture Subcommittee held a hearing to examine U.S. agricultural trade from the perspective of stakeholders. After the hearing, Subcommittee Ranking Member David Rouzer (NC-7) and Committee Ranking Member K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) made the following remarks:
“There is no question that trade is vitally important to American farmers and ranchers looking to expand market access for their products. For decades, we’ve seen nations like China, Turkey, and India take advantage of our producers with unfair tariffs, non-tariff trade barriers, and predatory trading practices. I applaud President Trump and his Administration for their efforts to level the playing field and to expand market access for U.S. producers,” said Subcommittee Ranking Member Rouzer.
