Introduced in Senate (08/01/2003)

Expresses the sense of the Senate that: (1) the U.S. goals in the Doha Round of the World Trade Organization (WTO) agriculture negotiations are to achieve significantly increased market access, harmonize allowed levels of trade-distorting domestic support for all countries, and achieve a more level playing field for U.S. farmers, ranchers, and agricultural producers; (2) the proposed modalities framework recently released by the Chairman of the WTO Agriculture Negotiations Committee fails to meet such goals; and (3) the United States should not agree to the proposed framework unless it is significantly improved and will result in meeting such goals.
