On May 18, the Trump Administration formally notified Congress of its intent to renegotiate NAFTA. As provided by the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015, this notification triggers a 90-day period before negotiations with Canada and Mexico can begin. As part of the 90-day process — and in an effort to hear from employers — the Administration published a Federal Register Notice (FRN) soliciting public comments on the renegotiation. Per the FRN, the Administration seeks comments on general and product-specific negotiating objectives, as well as comments on specific provisions. Following the comment period, a public hearing will be held at the U.S. International Trade Commission.
Comments are due Monday, June 12. AIV encourages interested members to participate. Click here for more information and options for filing comments online (see the Comment Now button on the upper right after reviewing instructions).
