Hartzler Co-Signs USMCA Letter to Pelosi
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) issued the following statement joining 158 colleagues on a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi urging her to bring the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to a vote in the House of Representatives:
“I sent Speaker Pelosi a letter urging her to bring this important agreement to a vote nearly two months ago, highlighting the importance the USMCA has on my district. I’ve heard nothing but radio silence from her office,” Hartzler said. “I’m pleased to have joined over 150 colleagues on this second push to get answers from the Speaker on the USMCA. We are running out of legislative days this calendar year and House leadership has still not addressed many issues hardworking people face every day, including the USMCA.”
“It is unfortunate that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has led us to believe in the last weeks that the USMCA would be brought to the House for a vote, adding that House Democrats were on a “path to yes” and that action on the USMCA was “imminent.” Saying that she now believes there is not enough time in the year to bring the agreement to a vote is quite the statement, especially after how, under her leadership, the House of Representatives spent nearly 30 legislative days on their quest to impeach a duly elected president.
