Wisconsin senators happy for USMCA passage

Both of Wisconsin’s United States Senators expressed happiness after the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement was approved 89-10 by the Senate on Thursday. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) replacement is expected to open up trade opportunities for farmers while also tightening rules for auto parts manufacturers and labor enforcement. Senator Tammy Baldwin says the USMCA is a win for Wisconsin farmers, manufacturers, businesses, and workers.

Senator Ron Johnson said in a statement that he hopes the USMCA is the first of many trade agreements that will benefit Wisconsinites. Gears quickly switched for Senators Baldwin and Johnson as they were both sworn in as jurors in the upcoming impeachment trial shortly after the USMCA vote.
