The National Corn Growers Association today praised the Senate for passing the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 (TPA-2015) and urged the House of Representatives to quickly pass the bill.
“Thank you to the senators who voted in favor of Trade Promotion Authority,” said Chip Bowling, a Maryland farmer and president of NCGA. “This legislation is critical to removing trade barriers, expanding our access to global markets, and ensuring farmers get the best possible trade agreements.
“America’s farmers and ranchers are counting on the House of Representatives to step up and pass this important legislation as soon as possible.”
