WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Mike Bost (IL-12) today released the following statement following the Trump administration and Speaker Pelosi’s announced compromise on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA):

“This bipartisan compromise on USMCA is huge news for the 70,000 Illinoisans whose jobs depend on fair and open trade with Canada and Mexico. I’m equally as excited to have this agreement as I am baffled that it took so long to happen. For over a year, my Republican colleagues and I have been urging Speaker Pelosi to bring the USMCA up for a vote on the House floor because we understood how important it was for jobs and economic growth. I am pleased that America’s farmers, manufacturers and working families will now have the certainty they have long deserved.”
