Inside U.S. Trade: "Levin To Offer TPA Substitute Amendment Focused On TPP, With Backing From Pelosi"


House Ways & Means Committee Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) has announced that he plans to offer a substitute amendment to a pending fast-track bill at a committee markup on Thursday (April 23) that would spell out detailed negotiating objectives for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), in a move that has the backing of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Levin announced the substitute amendment in his opening statement at a Ways & Means hearing on trade today (April 22). He said he plans “to offer an alternative to this TPA at tomorrow’s markup that puts TPP on the right track, providing a path forward to an agreement that will garner broad, bipartisan support in Congress.”
