Ag Groups Support Trevino for USTR Post
USAgNet - 10/25/2021

Over 170 agricultural and food groups are asking the Senate Finance Committee to quickly confirm Elaine Trevino as the chief agricultural negotiator for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

In a letter sent last week to committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Ranking Member Mike Crapo (R-ID), the organizations said Trevino "has the experience and expertise to secure greater market access for U.S. products and ensure enforcement of clear and fair rules with our trade partners so U.S. food and agriculture workers and our industry sectors may fairly compete in the global economy."

Trevino, who is president of the Almond Alliance of California and formerly served as a deputy secretary at the California Department of Food and Agriculture under governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gray Davis, was nominated by President Biden last month.
