U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, an outspoken advocate for Nebraska agriculture and trade, issued the following statement after the House of Representative finally passed the USMCA trade agreement after more than a year of stonewalling.
"About dang time. Speaker Pelosi's priorities are seriously out of whack. She wasted a full year stonewalling USMCA because she didn't want to give President Trump and Nebraska's farmers and ranchers a win. But we've been working hard to get this deal done. Today, we finally got that vote in the House - and that's a huge win for ag in our state. This is big."
