NAMI joined a broad array of agricultural organizations in briefing House and Senate Agriculture Committee and Member staffs on the importance of passing Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which is necessary to finalize and implement numerous trade agreements, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP). NAMI Senior Vice President of International Affairs Bill Westman participated in these meetings, during which he outlined the importance of TPA for NAMI member companies. Earlier this month, NAMI and 70 other food and agricultural organizations signed a letter urging Congress to quickly introduce and approve legislation to renew TPA.
