Wyden Statement on Finance Committee Trade Hearing

WASHINGTON – Following the announcement of a Finance Committee hearing on trade next Thursday, February 26, a spokesman for Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., issued the following statement:

“Today’s hearing announcement is premature,” said Wyden spokesman Keith Chu. “There is no agreement on Trade Promotion Authority, or other aspects of the legislative trade agenda more broadly. Sen. Wyden is continuing to fight for more transparency, more oversight and provisions to ensure American workers come first in our trade policy.”
