(Le Mars) — U-S Senator Chuck Grassley was at Le Mars this morning, answering questions from about 30 people during a town hall meeting. The Republican senator visited the facilities and with the employees of Agri- Vision, formerly ICON Ag and Turf. Grassley answered questions relating to the farm bill, renewable fuels, credit unions versus banks, trucking regulations, and also the trade tariffs on steel and aluminum that went into effect as of midnight last evening. Grassley was asked to explain President Trump’s thinking regarding trade tariffs.
Following the town hall meeting, Grassley met with local media, and was asked about the on-again off-again negotiations with North Korea, and whether there will be an actual summit.
Grassley says he hopes the negotiations will prove successful so that food can be delivered to the people of North Korea. Grassley says they have been undernourished for decades.
