Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) --

“After months of negotiations, I am grateful that we were able to reach bipartisan consensus on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement that ensures fair trade practices, implements critical protections for workers, eliminates giveaways to the pharmaceutical industry, and takes necessary steps to safeguard our environment. We made a promise to the American people that we would not move forward with an agreement unless it contained significant improvements and robust enforcement mechanisms—and that is exactly what we have delivered.

“I was proud to cast my vote in support of this critical agreement and look forward to continuing to work alongside my colleagues to strengthen America’s economy and support working families everywhere.”
