Missouri Resolution Urging Congress to Refrain from Adopting the USMCA (HCR 45)
This law was last updated on Sep 19, 2019
HCR 45 is a concurrent resolution which recommends that the United States Senate refrain from ratification of USMCA or, in the alternative, that the Congress of the United States refrain from implementation of USMCA in any manner contrary to current federal law.
Provisions in the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement (USMCA) require legislation by member states to prevent workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
The resolution claims:
[…]ratification of USMCA by the Senate of the United States with the language involving gender identity and sexual orientation could be confusing given that USMCA, by its own terms, does not require any change to current federal law to conform to such language.
2/20/19 – Introduced.
