The Trump administration has taken a step toward ratifying the new North American trade agreement — the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement or USMCA. Congress has recieved a draft notice alerting the legislative body that the pact could come soon.
The “Statement of Administrative Action” was sent in late May.
The move represents a procedural step forward on the path to approve the USMCA. Thirty days must pass before the Trump administration can submit the full legislation to Congress.
The Alabama Farmers Federation has agreed to sign a letter encouraging Congress to ratify USMCA. The letter represents all segments of the U.S. food value chain at national, state and local levels.
