Rep. Quayle Applauds Passage of Free Trade Agreements

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Ben Quayle (R-AZ) released the following statement Wednesday after the House passed free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea:

"After waiting nearly three years for the President to send them over, the free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea have passed out of the House. I voted in favor of the agreements and strongly urge the Senate to follow suit because they will create hundreds of thousands of jobs in America and bring much-needed economic growth to Arizona. The third district, for instance, with its thriving high-tech sector, already has nearly 35,000 jobs directly supported by exports. With these trade agreements nearly finalized, that number will surely climb.

"Although they will not solve all of our economic woes, these agreements help maintain America's competitiveness. We live and work in a global economy. These agreements ensure that we don't continue to lose market share to our economic competitors which leads to lower exports and fewer American jobs."
