Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall joined his colleagues and voted in favor of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which passed the House in a vote of 385 to 41. The USMCA updates the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the more than two decade old trade deal that allows for duty free trade between the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

"21st Century farmers, small business owners, and entrepreneurs need a modern trade deal that addresses the realities of a 21st Century economy," said Congressman Woodall. "USMCA is the best trade deal I've seen in my adult lifetime. Today, it passed the House with overwhelming bipartisan support. It is my sincere hope that the Senate will swiftly take up and consider the agreement so that Congress can deliver on President Trump's promise to reinvigorate local economies and bring back jobs to the hardworking men and women who embody the very best of our nation's values."
