WASHINGTON (November 15) — Today, the Pass USMCA Coalition, an alliance advocating for swift passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, applauded Congress’ movement towards ratification.
The news follows a formal statement released Thursday in support of USMCA from the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, which is comprised of 24 Democrats and 24 Republicans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also expressed her desire to pass USMCA by the end of the year on the same day.
“We’re thrilled to see lawmakers from both sides of the aisle speaking up in favor of USMCA,” said Pass USMCA Executive Director Rick Dearborn. “We’ve worked tirelessly over the past year to show Congress that USMCA is a truly bipartisan deal that benefits American workers, strengthens the economy, and drives innovation.”
USMCA is a 21st century trade pact that will revolutionize North American trade. The deal is expected to increase U.S. GDP by more than $68 billion and create 176,000 new jobs for American workers.
“We’ve always maintained that the agreement signed by all three countries last fall was a good deal,” added Pass USMCA Honorary Co-Chairman Joe Crowley. “And now a growing number of Congressional members are saying so too.”
“Americans have waited long enough,” concluded Dearborn. “Let’s get USMCA across the finish line.”
