Hoeven to Deliver National Republican Weekly Radio Address Saturday

Will Stress Need to Ratify Pending Free Trade Agreements to Create Jobs, Grow Economy

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven will deliver the national Republican weekly radio address on Saturday, June 18. He will discuss the importance of three pending free-trade agreements and the need for the President to send them promptly to the U.S. Senate for approval.  

“Our country needs the kind of pro-jobs, pro-growth policies that will help us live up to our vision of a strong, peaceful, prosperous America,” Hoeven said. “We have an opportunity right now to advance that vision and jumpstart the nation’s economy. Robust international trade can help us do it, and we can start by ratifying long-pending free-trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.” 

Hoeven serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations, Energy and Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Indian Affairs committees. 

A copy of Senator Hoeven’s address and links to audio and video will be available Friday afternoon, embargoed until 6 a.m. Saturday morning.
