WASHINGTON -- Chairman of the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee, Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14) issued the following statement this afternoon in response to President Obama's decision to finally transmit Free Trade Agreements with Panama, Colombia and South Korea to the Congress for ratification:

"For 987 days, President Obama has delayed the submission of these key free trade agreements, putting his labor union pals above job creation and economic growth. In a fraction of the time it took the President to submit these agreements, the Congress will act to implement them. After two and half years of icy relations with our Latin America allies, I am hopeful the swift passage of these agreements by the Congress will also go far in strengthening America's standing in the region."
