With the signing of the USMCA, we’re one step closer to strengthening our trading relationship with two countries that South Dakota’s farmers and ranchers depend on to export a significant portion of their products.

Dusty Johnson
SD At-large District

14 legislative days left on the calendar, Madam Speaker. We need to pass #USMCAnow.

Mike Rounds

South Dakota’s top two trading partners are Mexico & Canada. VP Mike Pence is correct. We need to pass the USMCA to help our farmers, ranchers & manufacturers thrive.

Kristi Noem

The USMCA is an agreement that delivers a win for: farmers ranchers businesses workers. With manufacturing and agriculture being key industries for SD, this would be a BIG win for South Dakotans. #USMCAnow @WhiteHouse @realDonaldTrump @USTradeRep

Larry Rhoden
Lieutenant Governor

In its analysis of the USMCA, the ITC estimated that it will have a more positive impact on the U.S. economy, jobs, and wages than any trade agreement the ITC has ever reviewed. This is SO good for our ag producers, business owners, and work force. #USMCAnow @WhiteHouse

Steven Westrea
Commissioner for the Governor's Office of Economic Development

USMCA means more jobs, good wages and a boosted economy. That means #SouthDakota wins. #USMCAnow @realDonaldTrump @WhiteHouse

South Dakota agriculture has built successful trade relationships through NAFTA, particularly with Canada. We would welcome congressional approval of the new USMCA.
