Congressman Schweikert Applauds Passage of USMCA, a Major Win for Arizona

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman David Schweikert released the following statement after House passage of the United States, Mexico, Canada Agreement (USMCA):

“Today, I am proud to finally vote ‘yes’ on USMCA. We have worked tirelessly to get this modernized trade agreement across the finish line, and while it took longer than we all expected, I am pleased to see the USMCA finally be passed to help strengthen our trading relationships across North America.

Arizona knows the importance of trade with its neighbors. While we are expecting many updates including strengthening our cross-border trade, creating better protections for IP, and small business friendly de minimis thresholds. 

I look forward to seeing the benefits of this trade agreement being implemented and moving on to the next policy proposal that will further grow our economy,” said Congressman David Schweikert.
