Hoeven Statement on Tariff Announcement

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, chairman of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Committee and member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, released the following statement on the Administration’s announcement on tariffs:

“We have continuously stressed to the Administration that any changes to our trade policy need to result in better deals for the U.S.  However, we must make sure that trade actions do not cost American jobs, raise prices substantially for consumers, or lead to retaliation by major trading partners that could harm other U.S. sectors, like agriculture and energy.”
