USMCA Part of Congressional Agenda

Congress is back in session and progress on the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement is part of their agenda.

However, some Democrats think the vote could slip to 2020 because they want to renegotiate the text of the agreement itself others say they are committed to getting it across the finish line before then. The White House hasn’t sent to legislation to Congress yet, waiting for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to signal that the House is ready for it.

Agri-Pulse reports that after submission, The Ways And Means Committee has 45 session days to report the bill to the House or it goes to the floor automatically. The House then has 15 session days to vote on the bill.
