The U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement implementing legislation could be sent to Capitol Hill in the next week. Some in Washington D.C. are optimistic it could be sent in a matter of days. Once the legislation reaches the Hill, The Russell Group president Randy Russell says it will be considered quickly. “I think there are sufficient votes in the House and Senate to pass it. I’m cautiously optimistic we’ll have the USMCA done between now and when Congress breaks for Christmas.” Russell says if the legislation is sent from the administration early this week, it is possible to have something ratified by Thanksgiving. “There’s been lots of work happening to move through the final details.”
