Reichert Applauds Introduction of the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act of 2014
Washington, D.C. -- Congressman Dave Reichert released the following statement upon the introduction of the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act of 2014 by Chairman Camp, Chairman Baucus and Ranking Member Hatch.
“I applaud today’s introduction of legislation to renew Trade Promotion Authority, which reaffirms the partnership between Congress and the President on international trade. The Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act ensures that Congress has a voice in trade negotiations by setting priorities and consultation requirements and is necessary for the completion of our current trade agreement negotiations. Trade supports millions of jobs in the U.S. and in order to continue to expand these opportunities, and the jobs that result, we must push forward on trade agreements. I look forward to working with the Chairman and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to bring this legislation to the floor and urge full engagement from the Administration.”
