Washington DC. – Today, National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) President Bill Reinsch congratulated members of the House of Representatives for passing legislation renewing Trade Promotion Authority (TPA).
“We thank leaders in the House and Senate for acting swiftly to find a path forward on Trade Promotion Authority renewal, and we applaud the members of the House for voting in support of this critical trade legislation.
“Today is an important day for U.S. businesses, workers and consumers, all of which will benefit from the expanded trade opportunities passage of TPA and subsequent high-standard trade agreements will provide.
“We urge the Senate to take up the legislation as soon as possible so that we can send TPA legislation to the President’s desk. We also call on both chambers to pass Trade Adjustment Assistance legislation as soon as possible.”
