Rep. Marshall Applauds USMCA Agreement
After more than a year of senseless delay, the United States, Mexico, and Canada have announced an agreement on the United States Mexico and Canada Trade Agreement. Following the announcement, Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., issued the following statement:
“Two years ago, I traveled to Mexico to negotiate on behalf of agriculture, because implementing this deal is so important to finally delivering a level playing field for Kansas farmers and producers. For the last year, passing USMCA has been my number one legislative priority. After sitting on Nancy Pelosi’s desk for an entire year, President Trump and Congress will finally be able to deliver on this huge promise to the American people,” said Dr. Marshall. “USMCA means thousands of new jobs for Kansans and hundreds of millions of dollars in crucial Kansas exports. I want to applaud all the agriculture and manufacturing stakeholders that have fought beside us to get USMCA to the finish line.”
Yesterday, Rep. Marshall joined nearly 160 House colleagues in sending a letter to Speaker Pelosi calling for the USMCA’s immediate passage. Read the letter HERE.
