WASHINGTON D.C. (KEYC) — Congressman Jim Hagedorn was one of the recipients of the 2019 Fueling Growth Award for his support of biofuels.
Rep. Hagedorn also spoke about the USMCA, which he hopes will be presented soon to the House floor for a vote.
He believes finalizing a deal with America's next-door neighbors will get the ball rolling on other trade agreements.
“But it does build momentum for these other deals that we’re trying to do all around the world. The one with japan is critical coming up, and then China, to ultimately get that worked out,” Rep. Hagedorn said.
The trade association Growth Energy presented the award.
CEO Emily Skor emphasized the crucial role that Minnesota’s biofuel industry plays in biofuels overall.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified Growth Energy as a PAC. The group is a trade association that represents ethanol producers.
