Title: America's Cattle Producers Hail House Passage Of USMCA

NCBA Urges Senate to Swiftly Follow House's Lead

WASHINGTON (December 19, 2019) - National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) President Jennifer Houston issued the following statement regarding the U.S. House of Representatives' approval of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) by a vote of 385-41:

"Today was a crucial win for all U.S. beef producers and a reassurance that U.S. beef will continue to have duty-free access to Canada and Mexico," said Houston. "A big thank-you goes to the Trump Administration and every lawmaker who voted to approve USMCA. Of course, there is still more work left to do, so I urge the Senate to swiftly pass the USMCA and send it to the President's desk."
