WAUKEE, Iowa- Vice President Mike Pence encouraged members of Congress to pass the US trade agreement with Mexico and Canada Wednesday during a visit to a Waukee area farm. He says Iowa farmers and other businesses already send a great deal of their products to both countries.
"This great state already exports more than $6.6 billion in goods and services to Canada and Mexico every year. In fact, nearly half of all of Iowa's exports go to Mexico and Canada,"
Pence says Iowa will benefit even more under USMCA
"This great state is the nation's 2nd largest agricultural exporting state. You produce more than $10.3 billion in goods every single year," added Pence.
Pence urged Iowans to reach out to members of Congress and tell them to pass USMCA
