Statement on USMCA Vote from Rep. Rosa DeLauro

I write to let you know that I have decided to support the re-negotiated North American Free Trade Agreement (USMCA). As you know I led the House Trade working group for the last several years. I took on this responsibility to ensure the United States did
not continue to lose manufacturing jobs. I worked to ensure that wages and income in the United States and our trading partners did not get further suppressed. I worked to ensure labor and environmental standards were protected and strengthened. I was determined
to make sure that any new trade agreements did not undermine U.S. wages and salaries, accelerate outsourcing, or continue to hurt working people.

TODAY: Member Forum on the Youth Vaping Epidemic

Dear Colleague,

Today’s youth are facing a public health emergency that threatens to erase decades of progress to reduce teen smoking. Youth vaping, now at epidemic levels, has exploded in recent years: just last week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced
new data showing nearly 1 in 3 middle and high school students now use one or more tobacco products.

This afternoon, I am hosting a Member Forum on the Youth Vaping Epidemic which will provide the opportunity to hear from those facing this crisis firsthand. Students and principals will share their experiences of the impact of youth vaping inside the classroom
and the efforts they have undertaken to combat the problem.

Please join me in this important next step in fighting the youth vaping epidemic. To RSVP, please contact Christian Lovell (christian.lovell@mail.house.gov) in my office.

Sincerely,

ROSA L. DeLAURO
Member of Congress
