TPA Before TPP

The Republican members of the House Ways and Means Committee have sent a message to the administration that it needs to build support for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and not complete the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement before the TPA is enacted into law.

In a letter to United States Trade Representative Ambassador Michael Froman, the members said, “Because of the critical importance of TPA in ensuring a successful outcome in the TPP negotiations, we will not support TPP if the agreement, even an agreement in principle, is completed before TPA is enacted.” Some are suggesting that Congress should consider TPA during the lame-duck session after the election.
