IRVINE, Calif. (June 24, 2015) -- Today, by a vote of 60 to 38, the Senate passed legislation renewing Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the Administration. With the Senate’s action, the legislation will now go to the president, who is expected to sign the bill in the days ahead. Today’s vote follows the strong bi-partisan support this legislation garnered in the Senate last month in addition to last week in the House. TPA is an important tool that allows U.S. negotiators to conclude trade negotiations and further expand export opportunities for fruit, vegetable, and tree nut producers.

IRVINE, Calif. (June 12, 2015) -- Today, by a vote of 219 to 211, the House of Representatives passed the portion of the Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 that would renew Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the Administration. Unfortunately, it did not pass a provision renewing Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) that was part of the Senate bill.  This failure keeps the entire package from being sent to the president for his signature. House passage of TPA follows the strong bi-partisan support it garnered in the Senate last month. It is an important tool that allows U.S. negotiators to conclude trade negotiations and further expand export opportunities for fruit, vegetable, and tree nut producers.
