U.S. Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers Urges Preserving & Modernizing NAFTA

U.S. House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers: “Other Countries Put Up Trade Barriers That Must Be Addressed Through Trade Deals Or We Put Our Farmers At A Disadvantage.  Retreat From The International Marketplace Is Not The Best Direction For Our Farm Economy And I Will Continue To Make My Concerns Known.” (Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, “Farmers Should Be At The Forefront Of Trade Policies,” Capital Press, 3/19/18)

  • McMorris Rodgers: “The American Farmer Has Been At The Forefront Of All Of Our Modern Trade Deals, And I’d Like To See Us Pursue New Trade Opportunities With India, The Philippines, Malaysia, And Other Asian Nations. I Also Believe That While We Shouldn’t Be Pulling Out Of NAFTA, There Is A Need To Modernize This Agreement To Ensure It Remains Beneficial For Us And Our Farmers And Keeps Up With The Realities Of The 21st Century Economy.” (Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, “Farmers Should Be At The Forefront Of Trade Policies,” Capital Press, 3/19/18)
  • McMorris Rodgers: “Farmers And Manufacturers In Eastern Washington Have, And Will Continue To Have, A Champion For Fair Trade As I Urge The Administration To Walk Back Tariffs, Stop Threats, And Move More Quickly On Negotiating Trade Agreements That Are Good For All Of Us.” (Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, “Farmers Should Be At The Forefront Of Trade Policies,” Capital Press, 3/19/18)
