    January 21, 2020 | Speeches and Statements

    WASHINGTON—Good morning. Thank you for that warm introduction. And many thanks to the S&P Global Platts conference team for inviting me to speak. I’m honored to be here.

    December 17, 2019 | Speeches and Statements

    Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I move to strike the last word. I am grateful to Congressman Kind and my other colleagues on the committee who crafted this resolution for their leadership on this important issue. I agree with much of what has been said by my colleagues regarding their intent with this resolution, but I feel like it’s not reflected in the resolution as written. If the resolution had reflected the balanced nature of what has been said in this committee markup, I could have supported it.... Read more

    November 19, 2019 | Speeches and Statements

    Mr. Speaker: I rise to express my hope and expectation that the Trump Administration and Congress will resolve the few outstanding issues so that Congress can take a strong, bipartisan vote to modernize NAFTA, our outdated trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, and replace it with U-S-M-C-A, a better agreement that will benefit America’s workers, farmers, businesses, and families—while also fortifying our relationship with our two closest neighbors.
