By Caitlin Curley, Colorado Politics

A panel of Colorado’s U.S. congressional representatives discussed the state’s recent successes and current issues at a Colorado Chamber of Commerce luncheon Thursday in Denver.

U.S. Reps. Ed Perlmutter, Diana DeGette, Doug Lamborn, Joe Neguse and Jason Crow answered questions about trade deals, the economy and Colorado’s growth at the event, held at the Brown Palace.

The panel was first asked about the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement (USMCA), otherwise known as NAFTA 2.0, which could have significant impact on Colorado, considering the nearly 12,000 jobs supported in the state by exports to Canada and Mexico.

All of the representatives indicated they hope the agreement in some form will pass.
