Title: Senate Passes TPA Legislation

WASHINGTON – Tonight, the full Senate passed Trade Promotion Authority legislation (S. 995) by a bi-partisan vote of 62 to 37. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President and Chugwater, Wyoming cattleman, Philip Ellis made the following statement upon passage:

“This vote by the Senate is a clear indication of the support that exists nationwide for future free trade agreements. The U.S. market is already one of the most open markets in the world, and to continue to grow demand for U.S. beef, we must continue to negotiate tariff elimination worldwide. I urge the House to follow the lead of the Senate and pass Trade Promotion Authority legislation.”
