House Ag Chair: USMCA Vote As Soon as Next Week

The House could vote on the U.S., Mexico, Canada Agreement (USMCA) as soon as next week, according to House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson (D-Minn.).
In an exclusive interview with Pro Farmer policy analyst Jim Wiesemeyer and Farm Journal news director John Herath for the DC Signal to Noise Podcast, Peterson said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to get the USMCA vote on the fast track.
“[USMCA Working Group chair] Richard [Neal] (D-Mass.) told me he is going to try to move it when we get back next week, or the week after, so he’s pushing hard,” Peterson said. “It’s going to get done. The question is, is it going to get done in those two weeks or is it going to get done in December?”
Peterson noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) talked about the push to pass USMCA on a caucus conference call this week.
