Amodei Statement on House Passage of USMCA Trade Deal

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Logan Tucker, 202-225-6155

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) today released the following statement after voting in favor of H.R. 5430, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) Implementation Act, a bipartisan trade deal negotiated by President Trump to replace the outdated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and grow our economy by stimulating more than $68 billion in new economic activity.

“The United States trades more with our neighbors directly to the North and South than we do with any other countries in the world,” said Rep. Amodei. “In fact, we export more American goods to Canada and Mexico than we do to our next 10 largest export markets combined. Trade with just these two partners supports millions of jobs nationwide, including nearly 1,600 jobs in Nevada.

“The USMCA secures strong protections and enforcement for all aspects of the agreement, and for the first time in any trade deal, it takes into consideration the countless technological advances that have impacted the way we do business in today’s modern economy. By dedicating an entire chapter to digital trade, this legislation will significantly maximize our potential to trade and invest in the digital age. Without a doubt, the USMCA will lead to freer markets, fairer trade, and increased export opportunities for America’s farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, and manufacturers.

“I’m pleased to finally see the USMCA pass the House, and I encourage my colleagues in the Senate to act swiftly on this legislation when we return from the holidays in January.”
