Wyden Statement on NAFTA Notification

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued the following statement on the announcement that the president intends to sign unspecified changes to NAFTA:

“It is premature for the president to announce he intends to sign a trade agreement when so many difficult issues remain unresolved,” Wyden said. “It sure looks like the president is more concerned with announcing a deal during election season, rather than getting the best deal possible for American workers, based on his rush to make an announcement before negotiations are close to complete. What matters are results, and it is too soon to tell whether the president has followed through on his promises to American workers, farmers and businesses.”
