Fast Track Authority: Harmful to Western New York
Congressman Chris Collins today released the following statement regarding his opposition to President Obama’s request for fast track trade promotion authority.
“I am a firm believer in free trade, but it must also be fair trade,” said Congressman Collins. “The secret executive branch negotiations on massive trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership will hurt American workers and businesses by excluding important provisions to combat currency manipulation. It is because of the hardworking Western New Yorkers struggling for a fair chance at the American Dream that I will oppose granting the president fast track authority to negotiate free trade agreements.”
