Fair Playing Field
Bad trade agreements such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) have created an unfair playing field for American workers and businesses. Marcy is a leader in the fight against so-called "free trade" agreements that have shipped American jobs overseas. From the beginning of her service she has led the fight in the House against NAFTA and later against legislation to grant China most favored nation trading status. She has introduced legislation to renegotiate unbalanced trade agreements to reflect the principle of fair trade that respects workers rights and protects the environment. Marcy has also been a leader in the House, fighting for action on China's illegal dumping of steel, which is harming steel towns in Northern Ohio and throughout our Nation.
