Washington DC – Today, National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) President Bill Reinsch issued the following statement applauding members of the Senate for passing the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 (TPA-2015).

"We are encouraged by today's Senate passage of TPA-2015, which moves the bill one step closer to the President's desk. We applaud Senate leadership and the leaders and staff of the Senate Finance Committee for their tireless efforts to push this legislation across the finish line.

"As U.S. trade negotiators continue to press forward on the Administration's robust trade agenda, it is vital that we have Trade Promotion Authority in place to ensure all agreements meet congressional negotiating objectives and provide the most benefits for the U.S. economy and American businesses, farmers and workers.

"Now that the Senate has taken action, we call on the House to follow suit by debating and voting on TPA-2015 as soon as possible."
