Thursday, June 18, 2015

WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Rep. Jackie Walorski (IN-02) issued the following statement after House passage of legislation to renew Trade Promotion Authority (TPA):

“TPA gives Congress the final say to reject or approve any trade decision and is the ultimate check on the president’s negotiating and trading power. This bill gives the American people the chance to read any deal before we approve it and helps ensure greater transparency throughout the negotiating process by empowering Congress to conduct vigorous oversight and hold the administration accountable.”

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District in Indiana, where she serves as a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, House Armed Services Committee, and House Committee on Agriculture.
