Border Trade Alliance expresses concerns over erosion of Tomato Suspension Agreement

The BTA in June 2021 sent this letter to Commerce Sec. Gina Raimondo, which expresses the organization's concern that Commerce will treat “FOB U.S. Shipping Point” as meaning the U.S. port-of-entry, not the first U.S. selling agent’s facility. Existing law, however, defines FOB as the first point of sale, not the first point of entry.
