Remove barriers to export for small- and micro-businesses
TPA legislation is expected to go before Congress in April 2015 and it will be a very close vote. TPA gives the Obama administration the leeway to present trade agreements to Congress for a straight up-or-down vote, which gives the U.S. more leverage at the negotiating table. Without it, the likelihood of arriving at successful trade agreements involving multiple countries goes down dramatically. Critics of the bill are well organized and vocal. Small businesses, which stand to gain the most to gain from reduced export barriers, are not.
