WASHINGTON-U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, issued the following statement with regard to the U.S. reaching a deal with Mexico and Canada to lift the 232 steel and aluminum tariffs:

'This is huge news for Iowa-especially our state's farmers and manufacturers who have been caught in the crosshairs of this tariff war with our neighbors. Months ago the president indicated that when a new trade deal was reached with Mexico and Canada, the tariffs would no longer be needed. Today's he's followed through on that.

'I've continuously shared stories of the severe impact these tariffs have had on folks back home and pressed President Trump and his administration about the urgent need to remove the 232 tariffs from two of Iowa's top trading partners.

'Now more than ever is the time for Speaker Pelosi and our House colleagues to signal their support for USMCA. We need to ratify this agreement swiftly-Iowa's farmers and manufacturers are counting on it.'
