Ryan Statement on Senate Cloture Vote for TPA

June 23, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, the Senate voted to end debate on trade promotion authority (TPA) legislation, setting the stage for final passage this week. In response, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement:

“I want to congratulate my colleagues in the Senate for voting to advance TPA. Only with TPA can the U.S. win a fair deal for the American worker in trade negotiations. And only with TPA can the U.S. rebuild its credibility on the world stage. I’m proud of my colleagues—in both houses, on both sides of the aisle—for working together to promote American trade. Some work remains to complete our trade agenda, but this has been a good day.
