Support Transparency in Trade Negotiations
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is standing up to the Obama administration and the U.S. Trade Representative’s office–demanding they release trade documents used as part of negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
“I appreciate the willingness of the USTR to make various documents available for review by members of Congress, but I do not believe that is a substitute for more robust public transparency. If transparency would lead to widespread public opposition to a trade agreement, then that trade agreement should not be the policy of the United States.”
