U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statement following House passage of H.R. 5430, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act:

"Today’s vote to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is a big win for America’s farmers, ranchers, workers, manufacturers and businesses. After more than a year of advocating for this important trade deal, we are finally one-step closer to modernizing and rebalancing trade relationships with our most important export markets – Mexico and Canada. The USMCA will expand agricultural trade, increase American manufacturing and protect intellectual property. It will lead to freer markets, fairer trade and robust economic growth in North America. As the major hub of North American economic activity, Texas stands to greatly benefit from this strengthened agreement as we move into a diverse 21st century economy. It is shameful that America had to wait so long for Nancy Pelosi to finally prioritize progress over politics. I urge the Senate to swiftly pass the USMCA so that it can be signed by President Trump."
