U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a leading advocate for Nebraska agriculture and increased trade, released the following statement as the USMCA trade deal went into effect today.
"Today is a win for Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers: USMCA is officially on the books. NAFTA did a lot of good, but this new agreement modernizes our trading relationships with Mexico and Canada and increases business for Nebraska ag. There are more and better trade deals to fight for around the world, and we’ll do that work — but, for today, we should celebrate USMCA as good news for our state.”
