BREAKING NEWS: USMCA Passes Senate Finance Committee

The Senate Finance Committee has voted overwhelmingly to approve the USMCA, which sends the measure to the full Senate for approval. The committee advanced the USMCA bill by a 25-3 vote, drawing opposition from Republican senators Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana along with Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.

The deal passed the House in December. A final vote in the Senate is expected later this week.
