However, due to Congress rejecting Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) in the vote immediately preceding, votes in favor of TPA were rendered largely irrelevant. “Republicans moved quickly to hold a vote on Trade Promotion Authority, but even though the bill received a majority of votes, it will not go to the president’s desk because it does not match the Senate-passed package.” The amendment passed 219 to 211. [HR 1314, Vote #362, 6/12/15; The Atlantic, 6/12/15] Voted For Adopting A Rule To Extend Trade Adjustment Programs And The African Growth Opportunity Act Voted For Adopting A Rule In Order To Concur Senate Amendment To Extend TAA Programs And AGOA.
