Trade Promotion Authority Legislation

Congress is now considering Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation.

The legislation would give Congress the opportunity to approve, with an up or down vote, any trade pacts that the administration negotiates.

Currently,  there are two extraordinary opportunities to expand trade, and hence, grow jobs, are under negotiation and nearing completion: the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.  Without passing TPA legislation, it is likely that the U.S. will lose out on being included in these historic trade deals, costing U.S. companies the opportunity to export goods overseas, and grow jobs here at home.

Much more information can be found in the U. S. Chamber’s  TPA Toolkit.

The BWCC is working in alliance with the U. S. Chamber and business organizations across the country in urging Congress to pass this legislation.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the BWCC.
