Washington State Department of Agriculture shared: WSDA Director Derek Sandison discusses the ins and outs of a legislative request for money to expand overseas market access for Washington farmers.
WSDA Requesting $6 Million To Help Address Trade Problems
The Washington State Department of Agriculture is looking at making a $6 million appropriation request during the upcoming legislative session to help offset problems the farming community has suffered because of retaliatory tariffs. It’s estimated that the three northwest states have suffered millions and millions in losses thanks to the trade war with China that’s been in place since this summer. WSDA Director Derek Sandison said if approved, these funds would not be used to help specific commodities or growers, but work to expand market access overseas. He said a sizable portion of those fund would be used to create a state marketing program.
Currently, Washington is one of five states that do not have a “state brand” effort. He noted this state marketing program would help the entire state now and well into the future.
These funds would be different than the $12 billion in aid announced by the federal government ... for this year… and (with) so much focus on midwest crops hurt by the tariffs, he expects the funds to be allocated quickly.
