We urge you to support economic growth, job creation, income growth, and improved national economic competitiveness by passing Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and by reforming and reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im Bank) this year. TPA will strengthen the hands of U.S. trade negotiators and help achieve solid results for U.S. companies, farmers and workers in ongoing trade negotiations, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP). TPA is also crucial to getting any negotiated trade agreement approved by Congress in a timely manner. Ex-Im Bank reforms and reauthorization will help level the playing field in the global market for U.S. companies. Read full letter here.
