Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa today made the following comment on President Obama’s proposal to reorganize and consolidate U.S. trade agencies.

“The enactment of trade agreements has been a hard slog with the President.  Any reorganization that disrupts trade negotiations and expanded markets for U.S. businesses and farmers would cause me serious concern.  Consolidation that doesn’t hurt export opportunities might make sense.  Congress will need to look at this proposal carefully.  It’s not surprising that the President is focusing on this area for consolidation.  Trade is already a lower priority than it should be for this White House.”
