Support Trade Promotion Authority

The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are considering bipartisan legislation to set negotiating objectives for the Executive Branch to achieve in free trade negotiations and to setup a process for holding the president accountable for the results. Known as Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the legislation also provides assurance to U.S. negotiating partners to put their best offers on the table. Every President since the mid-1970s has been granted authority by Congress to negotiate trade agreements and to submit implementing legislation for an up-or-down vote without amendment.  

The Obama Administration is now negotiating market access for U.S. electroindustry companies in European and Asia-Pacific markets via the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). To close the deals, however, U.S. negotiators need the backing of Congress via passage of TPA. 

Contact your Senators and Representative to encourage their support for passage of TPA legislation as soon as possible.
