Hartzler concerned with lack of trade emphasis
Missouri Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler says she’s concerned with the Biden administration’s lack of trade emphasis.
Hartzler sits on the House Agriculture Committee.
“It has been a whole year and we have yet to have a hearing, I have yet to meet the trade ambassador,” Hartzler said.
She tells Brownfield the administration needs to be tougher on China’s trade commitments.
“China agreed to some expanded imports from us in that last trade deal,” she said. “We just need to hold them accountable for that. That certainly was a boost to our prices, and we need to keep pushing that they fulfill that.”
Brownfield interviewed Hartzler at the recent Missouri Cattlemen’s Annual Meeting.
