President Pleased with Trade Promotion Authority

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary

President Pleased with Trade Promotion Authority Progress
Statement by the President

For nearly 10 Years, America has lacked Trade Promotion Authority and the ability to fully take advantage of trade opportunities. I commend the House and Senate conferees for their leadership in reaching a landmark agreement on TPA, which will open markets, expand opportunity and create jobs for American workers and farmers. The House has shown a commitment to getting something done on behalf of the American people, and I urge the Senate to vote on this good bill before the Senate goes home for the August recess.
