Historic Trade Agreement Signed

U.S. Trade Representative, Michael Froman and trade officials from the 11 other participating nations in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), signed the agreement today in Auckland, New Zealand. Signing the deal meets the 90 day deadline established on November 5, 2015, by President Obama when he notified Congress of his intention to support the TPP. Congress will vote on the trade deal, but cannot amend it. At this point no vote has been scheduled and the timing of a vote is unclear due to the challenges presented by an election year.
