Gardner Votes For Colorado Jobs, Economic Prosperity

Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement today following the Senate’s vote to advance Trade Promotion Authority (TPA):

“Trade supports hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs in Colorado. TPA provides Congress with the authority to approve high-quality trade deals that create jobs, break down barriers for American exporters, and put more goods stamped ‘Made in the USA’ on shelves overseas. Free trade deals enhance America’s standing in the world, building stronger alliances with our friends and putting economic pressure on our rivals.                                                                                        

“TPA is the best path forward to finalizing transparent trade agreements that keep America competitive, strengthen our economy, and create better-paying jobs for Coloradans. Now, it’s the administration’s responsibility to negotiate a good deal and bring it before Congress and the American people for a full public vetting and a vote.”
