WASHINGTON — House Ways and Means committee chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.) issued a “call to action” to President Obama on Thursday to get more personally engaged in building support for trade promotion authority and warned he will not support a cornerstone of Obama’s trade agenda — the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal — without it.
Camp, who wields power in the perch of the committee overseeing trade and tax policy, forcefully staked out his position in a speech hosted by the Global Business Dialogue, in an apparent attempt to reignite what many have said is a stalled trade agenda. Camp cosponsored a bipartisan, bicameral TPA bill introduced in Congress in January that has since stalled.
