NCBA Says Removal of Steel, Aluminum Tariffs "Opens the Door" For USMCA
WASHINGTON (May 17, 2019) - National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Senior Vice President, Government Affairs, Colin Woodall, today released the following statement in response to a deal that will lead Canada and Mexico to drop retaliatory tariffs against U.S. producers:
“NCBA is grateful to President Trump for working with Canada and Mexico to resolve the steel and aluminum tariff situation. Removing this trade barrier opens the door for Congress to ratify the U.S.-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA). NCBA strongly supports the USMCA, and now is the time for Congress to work with President Trump to ratify the USMCA as soon as possible. We cannot afford to delay action on this monumental agreement.”
