Washington, DC - House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee Chairman Dave Reichert (R-WA) 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:

“I congratulate Ambassador Lighthizer and his team for the work they have done so far in this agreement. I am very glad Canada is now part of the agreement because North America is stronger and more successful together. With 40% of jobs tied to trade in my home state of Washington, an updated NAFTA agreement is beneficial for our workers, businesses, and farmers. I look forward  to taking a closer look at the agreement and discussing it with my colleagues to determine whether it meets our objectives. I am optimistic that a strong partnership will create jobs and growth here in America."
