The American Soybean Association (ASA) is urging its members to contact members of Congress on four key items of "unfinished business" that are of critical importance to U.S. soybean farmers and the soy industry. ASA also urges members to talk to candidates who are seeking Senate or House offices about these issues. Although only current members of Congress will vote in any lame duck session, it is important to educate candidates about soybean farmer policy priorities including:
- Extension of the biodiesel tax credit;
- Estate tax legislation;
- Passage of the South Korea Free Trade Agreement (and possibly the Colombia and Panama FTAs) to retain and expand U.S. exports to these countries; and,
- Removal of barriers hindering trade with Cuba.
