Indiana Corn Growers Celebrate Trade Promotion Authority Passage
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 24, 2015) — Indiana Corn Growers Association President Herb Ringel, a farmer from Wabash, issued this statement following a U.S. Senate vote Wednesday sending Trade Promotion Authority legislation to President Obama’s desk.
“Today’s Senate vote is a big victory for Indiana corn farmers and the entire agricultural industry. Indiana farmers export over $410 million of corn each year. With greater market access, Hoosier farmers can do even more. Thank you to Senator Dan Coats for his leadership in our pursuit of greater trade power and his work in passing Trade Promotion Authority. We look forward to a quick signature by the President.”
