House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following following statement on the trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada that will replace the North America Free Tree Agreement (NAFTA):

“I’ve long said we need to move from tariffs to trade agreements. I’m encouraged that Canada has joined us and Mexico to create a modern free trade agreement that expands markets for our exporters and further grows our economy. I look forward to reviewing this new agreement more closely to ensure it provides more opportunities for our farmers in Eastern Washington so they can sell their wheat, potatoes, and other crops. I will continue to work with the Administration to ensure that their interests are protected.”
