WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom Rice (R-S.C.) released the following statement after voting for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“The nameplate on my desk says jobs, jobs, jobs and that's exactly what the USMCA will bring. For far too long, America was willing to accept trade agreements that were tilted against American workers. These unfair agreements are one of the primary reasons that the American middle class has stagnated for decades until the election of President Donald Trump. This new agreement will bring new jobs to America, raise wages, and accelerate the growth of our economy. With this agreement, President Trump is doing what is right and what is fair for America. I am proud to have voted in favor of it.”
