Rising tariffs increase your risk of having an insufficient bond—and that can lead U.S. Customs to shut down your ability to import. On December 12, C.H. Robinson will be hosting a “Tariff Impact: Is Your Customs Bonds Sufficient?” webinar that will explain how a surety bond differs from an insurance policy. Additionally, the webinar will cover what can happen when a surety bond isn’t increased in a timely manner and what you can do now to monitor your import activity and assess your company’s risk.

With the election results finalized, several legislators who gave extraordinary effort in service to our industry are leaving public service. Western Growers wishes to extend special gratitude to Reps. Jeff Denham and David Valadao, and to former state Senator Andy Vidak.

Jeff Denham’s career has been defined by public service, first in active and reserve duty for the United States Air Force, where he served for 16 years, then as a member of the California State Senate from 2002 to 2010. In 2010, Denham won election to the first of four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.
