Rep. LaHood Applauds Senate Passage of USMCA
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Darin LaHood (R-IL) today released the following statement after the United States Senate passed the United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA).
“USMCA is a win for Illinois, and I applaud the Senate to acting swiftly to pass this critical trade deal,” stated Rep. LaHood. “This trade pact will strengthen a vital trade relationship for our producers, and I look forward to President Trump signing this deal in the coming days so our country can reap the benefits. With USMCA headed to the President’s desk and the phase one trade deal with China locked in, Illinois farmers, manufacturers, and small businesses are in a stronger position to compete around the globe. As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, I’ll continue to fight for free and fair trade deals for central and west-central Illinois.”
