By Ron Kotrba | March 21, 2019

U.S. soybean leaders met in Washington, D.C., the week of March 18 for one of two annual meetings of the American Soybean Association Action Partnership. The meetings focused on trade, rural infrastructure and communications.

Although lawmakers were not in session, soy growers met with legislative staff on Capitol Hill to push for completion of the USMCA trade agreement, implementation of the Farm Bill and reinstatement of the lapsed biodiesel tax credit.

A resolution to the trade war with China and new market development were reiterated while in Washington, D.C.
