(Lincoln, NE)––Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (NE-1) issued the following statement today regarding progress on the United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement, or USMCA.

“After months of negotiations, a tentative understanding has been reached that will hopefully enable passage of the United States, Mexico, and Canada trade agreement––the USMCA. This would be a great deal for Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers, while ensuring the continuity of strong labor and environmental standards throughout the three-nation trading zone,” Fortenberry said.  “The deal is scheduled for a House vote next week. I will vote for it,” Fortenberry added.


Congressman Jeff Fortenberry is the Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a Member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations.
