Carter on Passage of USMCA

(Washington, D.C.) – Representative John Carter (TX-31) released the following statement after voting in favor of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“After more than a year of delay by Speaker Pelosi, the House of Representatives has finally passed the USMCA with overwhelming support. While this agreement will significantly benefit the United States, Texas is positioned to be one of the USMCA’s biggest winners thanks to its annual export of $140 billion in goods to Mexico and Canada. With nearly 60 percent of all jobs in my district reliant on trade with our North American partners, the USMCA’s passage is a clear victory for Texas’ 31st District.

“Nationally, trade with Mexico and Canada supports 12 million American jobs, so having a free and fair trade agreement is crucial to the health of the U.S. economy. Along with the added $68 billion in new economic activity, the USMCA will be responsible for the creation of 176,000 U.S. jobs.

“The USMCA will serve as the model for all future U.S. trade agreements, and is an example of how Congress should work with the Administration to create prosperity for Americans.”

The USMCA is set to modernize the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to better serve the interests of American workers and our economy. The agreement will deliver key economic wins in the auto manufacturing, agricultural and digital commerce industry, which are crucial to Texas’ economy.
