Congress Wants Input on NAFTA Withdraw, if it Happens

Dan Industry News Release, Trade

naftaThere are concerns that President Trump may pull the United States out of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Wisconsin Third District Congressman Ron Kind says if that would happen, it would be the first time the U.S. has pulled out of a signed agreement. Kind believes that before a withdrawal happens, Congress should have some input on pulling out of NAFTA.

The Wisconsin Democrat says that Congress, not the President has jurisdiction on trade.

Currently the President is re-negotiating NAFTA under Trade Promotion Authority Rules that were passed two years ago.
