Gardner Commends Passage Of Trade Authority

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement commending the passage of Trade Promotion Authority by the Senate:                          

“Passing TPA is an important step towards completing the free trade bills currently being negotiated by our country. Breaking down barriers to trade creates jobs here at home while filling shelves abroad with more products stamped ‘Made in the USA’. Free trade enhances our standing in the world and helps build stronger alliances with other nations while putting pressure on our economic rivals. 

"This vote on TPA is not the end of the process. It's now the job of American negotiators to bring back a fair deal that creates jobs and builds our economy. Any deal negotiated will be subject to review by Congress and the public, and will receive an up or down vote. I'll continue to press for trade deals that benefit Coloradan and American workers while breaking down economic barriers."
