Washington, D.C., December 19, 2019 | Austin Livingston (803-833-0030)
On Thursday, U.S. Congressman Ralph Norman issued the following statement after voting in favor of the USMCA:
"Ultimately what the USMCA does is help level the playing field for trade between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The result will be more than half a million new American jobs, higher wages for our workers, and more opportunities for U.S. businesses.
"Although there are elements of this agreement that I disagree with – including and especially Article 19.17, which mirrors CDA Section 230 – I believe the overall benefits of the USMCA will nevertheless be substantial to our nation. I thank President Trump and his administration for their work in making this a reality."
