Lawmakers are reviewing the International Trade Commission’s analysis of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. North Dakota Representative Kelly Armstrong doesn’t know if it will change discussions on the trade talks once session resumes. Armstrong says one big challenge ahead for the USMCA in Congress is getting lawmakers to work together and ratify the agreement. “The longer it sits around, everybody is going to want to pull one band aid off it. Then what happens is they all get pulled off, and we’re in a real bad situation,” says Armstrong. “Time will be of the essence once we’re back in session.”
