Congress to Cut Funds for Mexico Pilot Program
U. S. Congress is preparing to cut off money for the pilot program, which paved the way for more than 500 vehicles from 100 Mexican operators to drive deep into the U.S.. U.S. allowed only a handful of Mexican trucks to travel abroad in the southern region, while it agreed when it signed the North American Free Trade Agreement, that the Mexican trucks full access to U.S. roads since 1995. If the U.S. is not in accordance with the agreement of NAFTA, Mexico could retaliate, for example, targeted placement, or to raise tariffs on American goods. If funding for this program was finally terminated by Congress, Mexico will keep open its options, said Arturo Sarukhan, Ambassador of Mexico to the United States, including revenge. "
