Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On USMCA’s Impact on Agriculture
Wednesday, August 25, 2019
Harvest is about to start across Iowa. Following a tough spring, farmers will now harvest their crops, hope they cover their costs and then make plans for next year’s crop.
Passing the USMCA would inject some certainty into these plans, and signal to the world that we are serious about passing new, modern trade agreements.
But we are running out of calendar days in 2019.
Congress must step up and deliver for our hardworking farmers and all Americans.
The time for USMCA is now.
