New trade deal to boost America’s digital economy

Congress will soon vote on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a monumental deal that modernizes North American trade for the 21st century.

USMCA will help American tech businesses drive economic growth and create jobs.

“Digital trade” encompasses a wide variety of activity. Any time a business in one country uses the internet to deliver their services abroad, that’s digital trade. When firms sell software or cloud-computing services overseas, that’s digital trade too.

Urania officials concerned about speed limits in town

Urania Mayor Terri Corley said in light of the recent tragic accident of the Sears/Smith family there have been further concerns about the speed of the log trucks that drive through town.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Sears/Smith family and what happened has caused a lot of concern with our situation and the log trucks,” Corley said. “We’ve done everything in our power to get DOTD to come and lower the speed limit. We need help with the speed limit being lowered and we will keep pushing for it.”

Council member Bill Brown said he has had quite a few people voice this concern to him as well. He said they have spoken to many on the state and local level and it seems their concerns have fallen on deaf ears.
