U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin says tariffs levied against China for unfair trading practices continues to negatively impact farmers in Door and Kewaunee counties. That's despite $16-billion in federal aid to farmers to ease some of the effects of the tariffs. Senator Baldwin says this second round of federal aid falls short because of other issues that have had a cumulative impact on farmers.
Baldwin says most farmers she's spoken with want fair trade to make their products attractive to offshore markets.
