Washington, D.C. – Today, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement after an implementing bill for the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. This is the next step, in compliance with rules set out under the Trade Promotion Authority, toward getting USMCA signed into law:

“Today’s introduction of the USMCA implementing bill in Congress is a welcome and important step in delivering the pro-growth and modern trade pact successfully negotiated by President Trump with our North American neighbors. Now it’s time for Congress to pass USMCA without further delay so that U.S. workers, farmers, tech workers, and local businesses can benefit from the many advantages we have won including new jobs, more customers for Made-in-America goods, and a stronger economy.”
