Oct 1, 2018 Issues: Agriculture, Trade, Ways & Means

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the below statement following the Trump administration’s announcement of a trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

“I’m very pleased to hear the administration has come to an agreement with Mexico and Canada to update NAFTA with a new US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) which builds on its successes. I have long supported a three-country agreement because it is vital to Nebraska’s agricultural producers and to our rural economy. I look forward to considering USMCA as Congress studies the details and I commend President Trump’s team for their success in reaching this point.”

Smith is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee which has jurisdiction over trade.
