WASHINGTON, D.C., - The American Farm Bureau Federation today applauded the Senate Committee on Finance for its approval of the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015.
“We thank Chairman Hatch and Ranking Member Wyden for their leadership in introducing this important piece of legislation to extend trade promotion authority and working for the strong vote of approval by the committee,” AFBF President Bob Stallman said. “This legislation is critical to making progress on pending negotiations and promises to expand opportunities for increased U.S. agricultural exports.”
Farm Bureau also urges the House Committee on Ways and Means to approve the TPA legislation.
