BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Following the Senate vote to pass the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) for trade, Illinois Corn Growers Association President Bill Leigh, a farmer from Minonk, made the following statement:

 

“Every step toward USMCA passage is cause for celebration!  Trade with Mexico and Canada is a vital part of the market for Illinois corn, with both countries making up 25-30% of corn sales leaving the country.  ICGA would like to thank our Senators, Tammy Duckworth and Richard Durbin, for their vote in support of the agreement as well as the entire United States Senate for their bipartisan and overwhelming support.”
