Rep. Titus Votes to Pass USMCA Trade Agreement


Date: Dec. 19, 2019

Issues: Trade

Today Representative Dina Titus of Nevada's First Congressional District released the following statement after voting to pass the USMCA trade agreement:

"This trade bill is an improvement over NAFTA, but it is far from perfect," said Congresswoman Titus (NV-1). "The Trump Administration's original proposal would have undermined workers and locked in sky high drug prices, and I'm only able to vote for the renegotiated version because of the meaningful improvements made by Speaker Pelosi, labor leaders, and progressive Senators. As revised, USMCA will boost international travel and tourism to Las Vegas and give us new tools to enforce stronger labor standards among our trading partners. Going forward, when entering into trade agreements, we must do even more to put working people and the planet first."
