U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids bargains for bipartisan trade deal with Canada, Mexico

U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids said congressional negotiations on a revised trade agreement among the United States, Mexico and Canada ought to be sustained until House Republican and Democratic lawmakers find consensus on labor and environmental provisions.

Its so important that we get to a place where we can get a bipartisan vote to get it through, the Kansas Democrat said Friday. It matters a great deal to have a trade agreement in place. For the ag community, especially, it makes a huge difference.

Davids, who represents a largely non-agriculture suburban Kansas City district, declined to say whether she would vote for a version of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, also known as USMCA, endorsed by President Donald Trump and many Republicans.

She urged negotiators to include stronger environmental and labor standards in the agreement. House Democrats also have raised questions about how the replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement would be effectively enforced.

1. It's a non-ag district

but the connections to agriculture are real and financial.
