WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Tuesday (April 19) in response to Mexico’s decision to no longer ban Arkansas poultry:

“Mexico’s decision to lift its ban on Arkansas poultry is good for the Fourth District and all of Arkansas,” Westerman said. “While the ban was in place, Arkansas poultry farmers were unfairly limited in the export market, slowing sales and impacting our local economy. Mexico is an important market for Arkansas poultry exports. I am thrilled to see our neighbors and trading partners once again open to one of the Fourth District’s major economic drivers.”
