Slotkin and Stevens must Stand up for Michigan

LANSING, Mich., June 17, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Congresswomen Haley Stevens and Elissa Slotkin’s inaction on US-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement. USMCA, which was negotiated by President Trump as a replacement for NAFTA, would add an estimated $34 billion in new Automotive investment to the U.S. economy. Much of which would be invested in Michigan. It’s also estimated that USMCA would add an additional $23 billion spent annually on American made auto parts and 76,000 new automotive jobs.

“Michiganders put the world on wheels but with 76,000 new automotive jobs on the line, Michigan Congresswomen Haley Stevens and Elissa Slotkin seem to be stuck in neutral. The US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement will rejuvenate the American Auto industry and bring jobs back to Michigan. It’s time for Slotkin and Stevens to stop hiding behind Nancy Pelosi and stand with Michigan workers. They must demand a vote on USMCA.”
