USITC Requests $2.75 Million Continuing Resolution Anomaly to Implement the USMCA

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) sent a letter to Congressional appropriators today, July 15, 2020, seeking a $2.75 million increase to its FY 2020 funding level for the implementation of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), if Congress enacts a continuing budget resolution for FY 2021. The USMCA, which entered into force on July 1, 2020, requires the Commission to investigate whether the U.S. long-haul trucking industry is materially harmed by an increase in cross-border trucking services provided by Mexican suppliers.
