Last week, bi-partisan legislation was introduced in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate that would restore the president’s authority to negotiate trade deals.  Senate Finance Committee Chairman, Max Baucus (D-MT), and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, Dave Camp (R-MI) both introduced Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation that, once passed, will increase U.S. exports and support the creation of American jobs, including in the agriculture industry.
