North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp delivered her final speech on the Senate floor Tuesday. It was an emotional speech that covered numerous topics. Heitkamp praised the leadership of the Senate Agriculture Committee for their work on the farm bill. Heitkamp also voiced frustration with the current trade tariffs. “I’m not saying we don’t need to address inequities in trade agreements; I’m saying you don’t need a 17th century solution, which is called a tariff, to deal with 21st century problems.” Heitkamp chided her colleagues to find bipartisan solutions and leave a legacy of service.
