WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) Director of Policy and Advocacy Charles Hernick released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) in an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 385-41.
“Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions is pleased to see the U.S. House of Representatives pass the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement as this new deal marks a major victory for clean energy,” said CRES Director of Policy and Advocacy Charles Hernick. “This trade agreement will help increase U.S. liquefied natural gas exports through expedited permitting and allows for continued zero-tariff treatment of U.S. energy exports to Mexico and Canada. Most importantly, it sends a strong signal that all countries cannot backslide on their environmental policies. CRES urges the United States Senate to pass the revised trade agreement and send it to the President’s desk for his signature.”
Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) engages Republican policymakers and the public about responsible, conservative solutions to address our nation’s energy, economic, and environmental security while increasing America’s competitive edge.
