CPA Statement: House Passes Fast Track Narrowly


June 18, 2015

Contact: Sara Haimowitz,


The Coalition for a Prosperous America CEO, Michael Stumo, today issued a statement regarding the close House vote in favor of Fast Track trade authority for President Obama.

"Pro-trade deficit legislators achieved a close house vote for 'Fast Track' trade authority today. Because the prior Senate bill on Fast Track was not approved, this new bill must now go to the Senate for approval. We expect passage in the Senate to be much more difficult because of issues surrounding Trade Adjustment Assistance and the Export Import Bank."
