AAPC Testifies Before Senate Finance Committee on Importance of Passing the USMCA



WASHINGTON, D.C. – Governor Matt Blunt, president of the American Automotive Policy Council, today testified before the U.S. Senate Finance Committee on the need for Congress to pass the USMCA. 

“America’s automakers are confident that – once approved by Congress – USMCA will not only help bring much needed predictability and help maintain the competitiveness of the U.S. auto industry, it will also serve as a blueprint for future U.S. trade agreements, allowing our automakers to thrive in the increasingly global auto market,” said Governor Blunt during today’s hearing.  “American automakers have given their full support to USMCA because it will not only help the U.S. auto industry remain globally competitive, it brings certainty and stability, which in turn will encourage automakers – foreign and domestic – to invest and expand here in the United States.”
