Op-Ed: Wyden and Blumenauer on trade legislation

The Oregonian | Senator Ron Wyden and U.S. Representative Earl Blumenauer

Expanding Oregon's exports will lift our state's economy, but only if trade policies ensure middle-class Oregonians benefit. That's why we pushed for new trade legislation that requires the administration to stand up for Oregon businesses and values in any new trade deal. We will only support trade agreements that include ironclad provisions for strengthening labor rights, protecting the environment, increasing consumer protections and securing essential human rights.
