WASHINGTON – Congressman Rice released the following statement after President Trump and Congress reached an agreement on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“After months of delay Speaker Pelosi has finally agreed to bring USMCA to the floor. USMCA will be a major boost for our economy and a huge win for American workers, farmers, and manufacturers. I commend President Trump and U.S. Trade Representative Ambassador Robert Lighthizer for their relentless determination, patience, and hard work in delivering pro-growth and modern agreement despite Speaker Pelosi’s politically motivated obstruction. Once ratified, USMCA means new jobs and a stronger economy for South Carolina and all of America. I look forward to voting in favor of this agreement soon.”
