WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the Trump Administration announced an updated NAFTA agreement:

“Any new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada ought to advantage American workers, farmers, and businesses; benefit consumers; and strengthen our relationships with our neighbors. I will be carefully reviewing the new draft agreement released last night to ensure that American workers will see higher wages and have access to new economic opportunities; that it protects the rights of workers and organized labor that Democrats have fought to secure and defend; that it includes environmental protections; and that any new obligations in these areas will be strictly enforced. Congress must carefully consider any new trade agreement based on how it meets these criteria.”
