Rounds Praises Bipartisan TPA Legislation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) today appeared on Fox Business’ Varney & Co. to discuss the Senate Finance Committee’s passage of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation late last night. TPA would help the U.S. finalize trade agreements and open new markets to U.S. goods.

“Trade Promotion Authority will help the U.S. negotiate stronger, more enforceable international trade standards and open up new markets for American-made products,” said Rounds. “It is an effective tool with bipartisan support that has been used by every president since FDR. I look forward to TPA legislation coming to the full Senate floor for debate so we can remove barriers and level the playing field in the global marketplace.”

In South Dakota, trade supports 124,000 jobs. In 2013, South Dakota producers and manufacturers exported $3.7 billion in U.S. goods.
