Walorski_May2017U.S. Representative Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) Wednesday called for a vote in Congress to approve the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) without delay. Walorski’s comments came during a Ways and Means Committee hearing at which U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer testified about the modernized trade agreement and other trade-related matters.

“This agreement will go a long way to drive exports for farmers and manufacturers in Indiana’s 2nd District,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “It sets a strong standard for the great innovators that call the Hoosier state home. And it levels the playing field for workers to ensure that we don’t lose jobs to unfair labor practices abroad. With the steel and aluminum tariffs lifted on Mexico and Canada, I think it’s time for Congress to act. It’s time to vote on the USMCA.”

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
