NSP Applauds Bipartisan Introduction of TPA Legislation


Washington, D.C. – National Sorghum Producers welcomed the introduction yesterday of bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority legislation that will establish the necessary rules and guidelines for trade agreements, which boosts U.S. agriculture exports, creates jobs and spurs economic growth.

“Our organization is pleased to see this legislation introduced as it is the first step to getting new trade agreements done,” said NSP CEO Tim Lust. “Trade is important to our industry and our nation’s economy and opens markets for U.S. farmers, therefore, we urge Congress to enact quickly this important legislation.”

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) and House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) introduced the bipartisan, bicameral legislation.
