Support Trade Promotion Authority

The Obama Administration is now negotiating market access for U.S. electroindustry companies in European and Asia-Pacific markets. To close the deals, however, U.S. negotiators and those of our trading partners need assurance that the packages will not be changed on Capitol Hill after they are brought back to Washington. Since the 1970s, Congress has granted the Executive Branch authority to negotiate trade agreements and submit implementing legislation for an up-or-down vote without amendment.  

To set negotiating objectives for the Administration and to secure the benefits for U.S. exporters of forthcoming agreements on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, Congress must approve legislation known as Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), also known as "fast track".  

Contact your Senators and Representative to encourage their support for the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act and passage of the Act as soon as possible.
