WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-6) voted for implementing legislation that will pave the way for the United States Senate to ratify President Trump’s pro-America trade agreement, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“It is a new day for all Americans and a great one for the farmers, small business owners, and every member of the workforce in Tennessee’s Sixth District,” Rep. Rose stated. “As a small business owner and an eighth-generation farmer, I understand how critical this agreement is for the people I represent. Since I was elected, I have not stopped hearing from constituents who need the ratification of USMCA. Now – finally – the House has passed legislation to make ratification a reality.”

President Trump first signed the agreement with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on November 30, 2018. The vote for implementing legislation passed the House in a bipartisan manner, with a vote of 385-41, December 19, 2019.

“Today, the greatness of the American dream is at the forefront of our minds,” Rep. Rose continued. “USMCA represents the great potential that is still ahead for the American people, and we have President Trump to thank for his leadership in the negotiation of this modern, pro-American jobs trade agreement. I was proud to vote for the bill today and commend the bipartisan support it received in the House.”
