Reichert Statement on Continued NAFTA Negotiations

May 21, 2018 Issues: Trade

Washington, DC - House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee Chairman Dave Reichert (R-WA) released the following statement on the continuation of NAFTA negotiations:

“With over 248,000 jobs in Washington State supported by trade with Canada and Mexico, Washington’s farmers, workers, and businesses have relied on NAFTA for decades. And they stand to benefit from an improved and modernized NAFTA that provides certainty and requires our trading partners to meet strong and ambitious obligations that are fully enforceable. It is my hope that the United States, Canada, and Mexico continue working toward an agreement regardless of when it might come before Congress. My focus remains on the substance of the agreement and how it will impact my constituents.”
