Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) made the following statement today regarding the proposal to launch WTO negotiations to eliminate tariff barriers to trade in environmental goods:

"A global agreement to reduce tariff barriers to trade in environmental goods such as wind turbines will help fight climate change and generate environmental benefits for the entire world, while at the same time creating more jobs through trade. The United States and its APEC partners laid the foundation, and now it is time for WTO Members to join together to advance this important initiative and produce an ambitious outcome."
