Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) has introduced a bill designed to identify and reduce trade deficits.
Slaughter, a staunch opponent of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, says the “Trade Deficit Reduction Act” would “change how we approach international trade and make it benefit our workers and manufacturers.”
Slaughter's office said the bill text is still being finalized. In a press release, she said it would “put a government-wide focus on addressing the most significant trade deficits that exist between the United States and other countries.”
