*Hatch Praises Senate Passage of Bipartisan Trade Bill*
*Utah Senator Says, “With Trade Promotion Authority back in our trade
arsenal, we can continue as the premier leader on global trade and open
more international markets for American farmers, ranchers, and businesses.
These new opportunities will mean better jobs, bigger paychecks, and a
healthier economy here at home.”*
WASHINGTON – Lawmakers passed the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities
& Accountability Act (TPA 2015)

on Wednesday. Senate
Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who authored the bill
along with Finance Committee Ranking Member Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), noted that
Washington had not acted on trade policy of this magnitude in nearly 15
years. “The Senate took historic action and delivered a strong win for the
American people and the future of the nation’s economy,” he said. “This
bipartisan legislation meets the demands of the 21st-century global
economy. It empowers Congress and the American people with a strong voice
in international trade negotiations, maximizes dialogue among stakeholders,
and helps secure high-standard trade pacts that will benefit American
workers and job creators.”
The bill, which has been supported by job creators throughout Utah, passed
60-38.
“With Trade Promotion Authority back in our trade arsenal, we can continue
as the premier leader on global trade and open more international markets
for American farmers, ranchers, and businesses. These new opportunities
will mean better jobs, bigger paychecks, and a healthier economy here at
home. I commend Chairman Ryan and Senator Wyden for their tireless work on
this vital issue. These results today are a reflection of true bipartisan
compromise. By working together, we were able to get this bill across the
finish line and to the President’s desk to be signed into law.”
