Setting the stage for a Congressional vote on one of the President’s major 2016 campaign promises, Democrats have reached a deal with the administration on the new North American trade agreement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced today. 

SMA President, Philip K. Bell, commented: “We praise the efforts of United States Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer, and his team, to renegotiate a robust and comprehensive, North American trade deal that is good for the economy, workers, and steel industries in the region.” Bell added, “Now that we have a deal in place, SMA and its members call upon Congress to move quickly towards an affirmative vote on USMCA.”
