WalorskiU.S. Representative Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) Wednesday released the following statement after the U.S. and Japan announced an agreement on a new trade deal:

“I want to congratulate President Trump and his negotiating team on reaching this important agreement that will improve access to export markets for America’s farmers and ranchers. I’m also encouraged the deal will mean fewer barriers to digital trade and more certainty that costly auto tariffs will not threaten American jobs or raise prices for consumers.

“Today’s announcement sets the stage for a broader agreement with Japan that will benefit American manufacturers, farmers, workers, and families, and I look forward to working with the administration to continue growing our economy.”

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