Stabenow Statement on Trump Administration’s NAFTA Renegotiation Notice

Thursday, May 18, 2017

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s NAFTA renegotiation notice:


“In the 23 years since NAFTA was signed, our country has lost too many good-paying manufacturing jobs to other countries.  No other state has felt the pain of those losses more than Michigan.  Given NAFTA’s importance to our workers, our farmers, and our economy, a modernization is long overdue.  As we move forward, we need to make sure that any changes to NAFTA lead to an improvement in our quality of life and higher incomes, not a race to the bottom.”
