Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On the Importance of Passage and Enforcement of USMCA
Monday, July 22, 2019
 
Passing USMCA means more market access for our farmers and businesses, and more protections for our workers.
 
This deal includes new commitments in critical areas such as customs, digital trade, services, environment and labor that are crucial to bringing higher wages and more jobs to American workers.
 
Of course, enforcement is key to a strong and durable trade agreement that will deliver all of the benefits I just listed.
 
We need enforcement measures that work for all aspects of the agreement.
 
It’s time to bring NAFTA into the twenty-first century.
 
The time for USMCA is now.
