WASHINGTON, D.C.— Trade Works for America co-chairs former Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Phil Cox today issued the following statement regarding hearings in the House and Senate that featured U.S. Trade Representative Ambassador Robert Lighthizer testifying on the progress of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement’s (USMCA) ratification:
“During his hearings this week, Ambassador Lighthizer reiterated the importance of securing Congressional approval of the USMCA as well as his commitment to working with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to make this a reality. By taking the time to listen to members about outstanding concerns, Ambassador Lighthizer will be able to submit implementing legislation that will win broad, bipartisan support on both sides of the Capitol.
