Walmart Statement on the Introduction of Trade Promotion Authority

January 10, 2014 -- Walmart today applauded the introduction of bipartisan updated Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation and urged Congress to move the legislation forward quickly:

“We appreciate the leadership of Senators Max Baucus and Orrin Hatch and Congressman Dave Camp for working together on a bipartisan basis to craft the updated TPA legislation introduced today. TPA is a necessary tool for passing Free Trade Agreements, like the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, which will help lower costs and increase choice for our customers.”
