Ranking Member Scott on NAFTA 2.0

WASHINGTON – Ranking Member Bobby Scott (VA-03) released the following statement regarding the new trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada.


“The devastating impact of NAFTA on American workers demonstrates the importance of including strong and enforceable labor protections in trade agreements. Based on the details made available, this agreement fails to provide the credible enforcement mechanisms that ensure labor protections are more than just words on a page. As a result, this agreement does not live up to the promises made to American workers. However, I remain open to working with the administration to reach an agreement that reflects the best interests of workers and middle-class families in Virginia and across the country.”
