Dems Work Towards USMCA as States Push Back

Dems Work Towards USMCA as States Push Back

Posted: Updated:

House Democrats reconcile with the U.S. Trade Representative over concerns with the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement.

Agri-Pulse reports the lawmakers have given their latest version of changes to Ambassador Lighthizer. House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal says they've reached on agreement on some substantial issues and he expects a vote on the deal later this year. Last week's hour-long meeting came before a two-week recess for the house, but lawmakers say they will work through the break.

While Democrats work to pass the USMCA, Florida's Commissioner of Ag pegs it as a bad deal. Nikki Fried spoke at the Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association Convention last week and says the deal as it's currently written could cost her state 8-thousand jobs and 400 million dollars. She added if ag isn't thriving we're putting our national security at risk and we need to put Florida and America first.
