“Congress Will Thoroughly Review TPP” – McCarthy

Taylor HillmanGeneral

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on an agreement being reached on the Trans-Pacific Partnership:

“Earlier this year, Congress passed the Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act that set out specific negotiating parameters and increased Congressional oversight measures. As we review the agreement just finalized, I will be looking to see if it is a strong deal that also reaches the guidelines set out by Congress. A good deal would open up new markets to American goods and services while creating new jobs and increasing take-home pay for American workers. I will be discussing this agreement with my constituents and Congressional colleagues to ensure that it lives up to the high standards of a 21st century trade agreement that safeguards and promotes innovation, expands access for agricultural producers, and ensures that U.S. standards and protections are upheld.”
