The Pass USMCA Coalition announced former Congressman Erik Paulsen will serve as the group’s latest honorary co-chairman this week, adding to the robust lineup of representatives focusing on supporting the swift passage of the USMCA.
“I’m thrilled to welcome my former Republican colleague, because USMCA must be a bipartisan priority,” added Pass USMCA’s honorary co-chair, Joe Crowley. “The new trade pact will create jobs, open new markets for U.S. creators and innovators, and grow America’s economy.”
Paulsen is well known for his ten years representing Minnesota in the U.S. House of Representatives between 2009-2019 in addition to his time in Congress on the House Committee on Ways and Means and Subcommittee on Trade. Current leaders of the group include former Congressman from New York, Joe Crowley, former Washington Governor Gary Locke, and Rick Dearborn.
“Erik’s experience in Congress will be an asset for the Coalition as lawmakers prepare to vote on USMCA,” said Gary Locke, honorary co-chair of Pass USMCA.
“I’m thrilled to join the Pass USMCA Coalition,” Paulsen commented. “USMCA will strengthen America’s economy and boost opportunities for American workers. My former colleagues should move this deal across the finish line quickly.”
