U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) met with Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel in Washington yesterday to discuss issues important to the Oklahoma agricultural industry.
“It was a pleasure to talk to President Moesel yesterday in Washington,” Inhofe said. “I greatly value the voice of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau and their members from all across the state. President Moesel and I talked at length about many issues including the impact of China’s implementation of retaliatory tariffs on Oklahoma’s farmers and ranchers as well as the importance of working quickly on NAFTA and other bilateral trade agreements to ensure international markets are open to high-quality Oklahoma agriculture products. We also discussed my confidence in the abilities of the new EPA Acting Administrator, Andrew Wheeler, to continue cutting through the red tape to help agricultural communities. I look forward to continuing to work with President Trump and his administration to continue rolling back harmful Obama-era regulations and to address China’s abusive and unfair trade practices without harming the agricultural community.”
In June, Inhofe met with Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross to discuss the impact tariffs and trade practices are having on the agricultural community. Read more here.
