As lawmakers reconvene in Washington, DC this week, central Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis says their number one priority should be approving the NAFTA agreement.


Congressman Davis says Mexico has ratified the agreement and Canada is expected to soon and believes the longer Speaker Pelosi waits to call the agreement for a vote, the more leverage they give to China. 



Congressman Davis believes passage of USMCA opens up opportunities with agreements from a host of other countries, in turn, putting more pressure on China.



Davis says producers in central Illinois are growing in concern over tariffs and USMCA.
