October 1, 2018 — Press Releases   

Washington, D.C. — House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement after the United States, Mexico, and Canada announced that an agreement has been reached on the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement:

“This important and welcome announcement that the United States, Mexico, and Canada have reached a trilateral agreement to update and modernize NAFTA for the 21st century can be a big win for America’s workers, farmers, and ranchers.

“Now that the full text is available, the public and lawmakers can carefully analyze the trade proposal in an open and transparent process that Congress intended under our new trade rules.

“Ambassador Lighthizer has achieved many new and winning provisions to increase our ability to sell more American goods and services, as President Trump promised. We will also look closely at the sunset and dispute settlement provisions to determine if they increase certainty and help sell more Made-in-America goods and services.

“I look forward to continuing to consult with the Trump Administration on these important questions.”
