Walberg Applauds Passage of USMCA to Help Michigan Workers
Washington, D.C.—Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) today voted for H.R. 5430, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) Implementation Act, to replace an outdated NAFTA. The bipartisan trade agreement passed with House by a 385-41 vote.
“For too long, Michigan has needed better trade deals, and today’s vote will help finally put NAFTA in the rearview mirror. The USMCA is a significant leap forward towards leveling the playing field for farmers, workers, and manufacturers,” said Walberg. “This modernized deal will put Michigan in a stronger economic position, boosting our state’s manufacturing and agriculture sectors and creating many more good-paying job opportunities. After months of delays, Michigan workers have another reason for optimism thanks to passage of the USMCA.”
Congressman Walberg serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions. For more information on Walberg's work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
