The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), in response to today’s House passage of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation:
“We are thrilled the House today again voted for TPA. This vote is a huge step with the Administration and for a nation which rejects isolationism and protectionism. TPA simply requires that Congress approve or reject trade agreements the president negotiates. Every recent president has had this authority and it is necessary for this president and the next president to have credibility at the negotiating table. We hope and expect similar Senate action soon.”
