Re: Grassley to lead Senate Finance Committee       

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig issued the following statement regarding the announcement that Iowa Senate Chuck Grassley will again chair the Senate Finance Committee when the 116th begins in January.

“I look forward to continuing to work with Sen. Grassley as he will again chair the Senate Finance Committee. Sen. Grassley is a tireless advocate for Iowa farmers and having him in this important role will help make sure Iowa’s interests are protected as negotiations move forward with a number of our key trade partners. We have seen real progress on trade negotiations in recent weeks and talks with China and the EU are scheduled during the G20 later this month. I will continue to work with the Administration to urge swift resolution to these trade negotiations.”
