President Obama submitted the Korea, Colombia and Panama Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) to Congress today, after a deal was struck earlier to renew Trade Adjustment Assistance for displaced workers. The free trade agreements were negotiated during the Bush Administration, but lacked the support on Capitol Hill to pass them until now.

Congress will act quickly to consider the FTAs. Passage of the agreements will create American jobs and increase exports, boosting U.S. global competitiveness – a Manufacturing Mandate priority. Although the FTAs have bipartisan support, it is critical that your legislators hear from you the importance of approving these agreements.
