Blunt stated, “This is great news for our state’s ag industry. For the last year, the question I’ve been asked the most in Missouri is, ‘when will Congress vote on USMCA?’ This agreement with our two biggest trading partners will help our economy, increase jobs, and benefit families. The best economy in 50 years has been defined by good regulatory policy and good tax policy. Today, President Trump adds to those two areas the importance of good trade policy. I’ve been proud to support this agreement and hope to see it ratified as quickly as possible.”
