North Dakota Corn Growers Association Executive Director Lisa Hochhalter was in Washington D.C. this past week to rally for the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement. “Our group reiterated how important it is to get this agreement ratified.” Hochhalter says opinions vary on how close a vote may be in Congress. “It depends on who you talk to and the people I talked with said they were waiting for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring it up and others were waiting on U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on the working groups. They didn’t really give us a specific time, but the main thing we heard is they want to get it done by the end of the year.”
