Appointment of Elaine Trevino to Biden Administration

Washington, D.C. -- Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today congratulated Elaine Trevino on her appointment to a post within the Biden Administration. As a result, the White House withdrew her nomination to serve as chief agricultural negotiator for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. 

“I’m glad to see Ms. Trevino will be serving the American people in an appointed post within the Biden Administration, where she will be well-positioned to press the case for American farmers,” Wyden said. “I urge the White House to quickly announce a new nominee for chief agricultural negotiator to advocate for red-white-and-blue farm goods in global negotiations. Farmers in Oregon and across the United States grow food the rest of the world wants. They need someone representing them at global negotiations as soon as possible.”
