Los Angeles – Today, Congressman Jimmy Gomez (CA-34), a member of the House Democratic Working Group on trade, released the following statement after the United States Trade Representative notified Congress that it plans to enter United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement into force on July 1, 2020.
“The trade rules in North America are now fairer for working families. Through the determination of House Democrats and under the leadership of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chairman Richard Neal, the historic United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement will soon be implemented, updating the rules for the 21st century and creating new standards in labor rights, environmental protections, and access to medicines for future trade agreements.
“Now, our new challenge in Congress will not only be to provide the necessary oversight of this new agreement and ensure its correctly implemented and used by the U.S. government, but to also hold our partners accountable to live up to the commitments they made in this historic deal.”
