WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and more than 600 business and agriculture associations and chambers of commerce sent a letter to Capitol Hill today urging members to support USMCA. 

The 600+ signatories represent business groups in all 50 states and more than 30 different industries, ranging from aerospace and automotive to tech and tourism. The group wrote:

"More than 12 million American jobs depend on trade with Canada and Mexico. U.S. manufacturers export more made-in-America manufactured goods to our North American neighbors than they do to the next 11 largest export markets combined, and the two countries account for nearly one-third of U.S. agricultural exports. They are also the top two export destinations for U.S. small and medium-size businesses, more than 120,000 of which sell their goods and services to Canada and Mexico."
