U.S. Representative Ami Bera, M.D.

WASHINGTON, DC (MPG) - The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed in a bipartisan manner the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The vote follows months of negotiations by House Democrats to secure improvements to the original USMCA negotiated by the Trump Administration.

“I’m pleased to see that House Democrats were able to secure important changes to the original USMCA draft,” said Rep. Bera. “The version of USMCA that passed includes strong protections for American workers, important enforcement mechanisms to ensure all countries are compliant, and key environmental protections.

The revised version of USMCA is a win for the U.S. economy and American families, and will bring vital jobs to California.”
