Marsha Blackburn Report: USMCA is a Win for Tennessee Businesses

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – After over a year of delay tactics from the House Democrats, this week the Senate was finally able to pass the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement, which updates a trade deal that pre-dates the existence of mobile phones and will benefit Tennessee farmers, manufacturers and small business owners.

Tennessee already exports over $13.7 billion a year in goods and services to Canada and Mexico, and the USMCA will make it easier for Americans to do business with our neighbors.

Lamar Alexander says Tightened Restrictions on Fentanyl Will Save Thousands of Tennesseans

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on legislation that passed in the Senate to designate all forms of illegal fentanyl as Schedule 1 narcotics. 

“Last year, more Tennesseans died from opioid overdoses than were killed in car crashes. And the leading cause of these opioid related deaths was fentanyl – a synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin,” Senator Alexander said. “The opioid crisis is ravaging Tennessee communities, and by designating all forms of illegal fentanyl as Schedule I controlled substances, this bill will save thousands of Tennessee lives.”
