Brady Applauds Mexico’s Passage of USMCA

June 19, 2019 — Press Releases   

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement after the Mexican Senate passed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), becoming the first country to ratify the new trade agreement:

“I congratulate the Mexican Senate for voting overwhelmingly to ratify USMCA this afternoon.  Today’s action, combined with passage of Mexico’s landmark labor legislation earlier this spring, demonstrate Mexico’s solid commitment to serious reform and tough new rules to create fairer trade.  Now it’s time for the U.S. Congress to pass USMCA as soon as possible to unlock the benefits of this agreement for U.S. workers and our local businesses.  The longer Congress delays, the more our country loses out on new jobs, more customers for Made-in-America goods, and a stronger economy.”
