WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Democratic head of the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee on Friday called for “good faith” negotiations with the Trump administration to address concerns about the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.

The timeline for Congress to consider ratifying the deal depends on the administration’s willingness to negotiate in good faith, U.S. Representative Richard Neal, chairman of the powerful committee, said in a statement after Democrats held a meeting with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

“We remain committed to working diligently with Ambassador Lighthizer on this agreement. The timeline for consideration of the revised deal depends on the administration’s willingness to negotiate with us in good faith to address House Democrats’ concerns,” Neal said.
