WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement regarding the conclusion of negotiations for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement:

“Today’s announcement that negotiations around USMCA have concluded is excellent news for trade in North America. America’s farmers and manufacturers have waited far too long for a modernized trade agreement guaranteed to increase agricultural exports and spread economic prosperity across the country.”

Lucas continued, “Immediate passage of this monumental agreement not only ensures the best for American trade, it strengthens our negotiation positions for other ongoing trade discussions. As China continues to distort trade relationships across the globe, the United States remains vigilant in protecting fair trade, competition, and free enterprise no matter the trading partner.”
