Travel Community Dismayed by TPA Rejection in Senate

Published on : Wednesday, May 13, 2015

U.S. Travel Association's Education SeminarU.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement on the U.S. Senate’s failure to advance Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) on a procedural vote:

 

“The travel community is very disappointed that efforts to pass TPA were halted today. The politics surrounding this issue are thorny, but there is no question that open trade is a powerhouse for economic growth and job creation. The travel industry is the perfect case in point: international visitors to the U.S. directly generated $221 billion for the economy in 2014 alone, with each spending an average of $4,300 per trip while consuming virtually no public services.

 

“We urge congressional leaders and the White House to find the political path forward for this common-sense legislation.
