Illinois Corn Growers Association President Bill Leigh issued the following statement regarding the news that Congress will begin steps to ratify the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement:

“In January 2019, the Illinois Corn Growers Association listed ratification of the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) for trade as a top legislative priority.  Mexico and Canada are top markets for U.S. corn and corn co-products.  A trade agreement between our countries that allows for free access to both markets is one of the most immediate ways to help Illinois corn farmers struggling through a very rough crop year.”

 

 “ICGA would urge quick passage of the USMCA.”
