Texas Manufacturers Gather in Washington to Urge USMCA Passage

The National Association of Manufacturers Is Committed to Helping Manufacturers and Manufacturing Employees in Texas by Supporting USMCA Passage.

Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, July 17, the National Association of Manufacturers will bring manufacturing leaders from Texas and across the country together in Washington to urge Congress to pass the new U.S.–Mexico–Canada Agreement. Manufacturers will meet with their respective members of Congress to let them know why the USMCA is pivotal to their businesses and the 2 million men and women across the nation, including nearly 115,000 in Texas, whose manufacturing jobs depend on exports to Mexico and Canada.

“The USMCA is critical to the Texas economy, and swift passage will help restore certainty for manufacturers across the country, allowing them to grow and compete with the rest of the world, said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. Without this agreement, Texas’s manufactured goods exports could be subject to $37.3 billion in extra taxes, threatening manufacturing jobs across the state and hurting consumers and families.”
