Washington is commonly known as the most trade-dependent trade state in nation. Not surprisingly, our Members of Congress from both parties have generally supported pro-trade legislation. However, in the current political environment, attacks on free trade are escalating.
The President and business leaders in DC are still pushing as hard as possible for a November vote, and we want to demonstrate that our state’s trade community is very much in support of that effort.
The US Chamber of Commerce and the Washington Council on International Trade (WCIT) have asked for our help. The Bellevue Chamber urges elected officials of both parties in Congress to affirm the TPP – please consider adding your name in support.
