Thirty-One Senate Republicans Urge Trade Representative Lighthizer To Preserve & Modernize NAFTA

Thirty-One Senate Republicans In Letter To U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer: “To Meet The Needs Of Today’s North American Economy, We Agree That NAFTA Should Be Modernized.  We Applaud The Administration’s Ongoing Efforts To Update NAFTA And Offer Any Support Or Assistance Needed To Reach An Agreement That Strengthens The American Economy.” (Letter To U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer, 5/21/18)

  • Since The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Came Into Force In 1994, Our Economy Has Diversified And Transformed Through Technological Advances And Growing Industrial Capabilities.” (Letter To U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer, 5/21/18)
  • “As You Near The Conclusion Of NAFTA Negotiations, We Urge You To Closely Consider The Parameters And Negotiating Objectives Outlined In TPA And Work Closely With Members Of Congress From Both Parties To Ensure That Any Agreement Has The Broad Support Necessary To Be Enacted Into Law.” (Letter To U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer, 5/21/18)
  • “In Our View, A Take-It Or Leave-It Strategy Could Have Negative Unintended Effects That Jeopardize American Jobs And Economic Growth. When Discussing NAFTA Modernization Legislation With Congress, We Ask The Administration Employ A Strategy That Emphasizes Collaboration, Rather Than Conflict.” (Letter To U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer, 5/21/18)
