Letter: Thank for supporting free trade

Marilyn Oden
Rifle

I would like to thank our two U.S. senators, Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet, for voting in favor of Trade Promotion Authority and supporting free trade which benefits American farmers, businesses and consumers.

TPA simply allows for the negotiation of a trade deal that is not then subject to whatever special interest add-ons that lobby groups want to attach to it. It still requires that Congress do its job, review the negotiated deal, and then either pass or reject it based on its merits.

Trade is critical to the economy of the United States and of Colorado. Opening up markets around the world will help our local farmers and ranchers, manufacturers and may even provide new life for our local natural gas industry.

Once again, thank you to Sens. Gardner and Bennet for supporting Colorado jobs and economic growth.
