Thompson, Scott Statement on USMCA Dairy Dispute Decision

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Glenn “GT” Thompson and Ranking Member David Scott today released the following statement after the USMCA dispute settlement panel issued its finding regarding Canada’s dairy tariff-rate quota (TRQ) allocation measures in favor of Canada:

“We are disappointed in today’s announcement and the decision of the dispute panel. It is critical the U.S. encourage and enforce USMCA, and this decision allows Canada to continue their questionable protectionist practices that disallow fair access to Canadian markets. We appreciate Ambassador Tai and the Biden Administration’s continued pursuit to ensure fair market access for U.S. dairy producers.”
