Freshly picked Red Delicious apples share bin space after being picked from an orchard near Chelan.

NCW — U.S. Rep. Kim Schrier called on national trade and commerce leaders to do what they can to lift tariffs set by India on U.S. apples, as it is impacting farmers in the district she represents, including Chelan County.

Earlier this month, Schrier, along with Sen. Maria Cantwell, led the Washington state congressional delegation of nine representatives to request the help of U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai and Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo, according to a press release.
