Iowa Political Alert: Latham talks pork, the real stuff

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

Iowa Congressman Tom Latham met with the National Pork Producers
Council recently. In the meeting, Iowa representatives from the
council stressed the importance of international trade to the domestic
pork industry, and specifically the pork producers of Iowa. Curtis
Hollis from Waterloo, Scott Tapper from Webster City, Bill Tentinger
from Le Mars, John Weber from Dysart, Mark Meirick from Protivin and
Jeff Schness from Clive were on hand for the meeting. "Amazingly, the
Speaker of the House is blocking a vote in Congress that would open
vast new markets for Iowa products," said Congressman Latham. "The
Speaker should immediately move Congress on the Columbia Free Trade
Agreement, the Korean Free Trade Agreement and the Panama Trade
Agreement."
