"I am disappointed that despite its strong track record and history of bipartisan support, the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program has failed to receive a long-term extension. This is the wrong time to delay extending this critical program, and with the expiration of the TAA reauthorization this past Saturday, countless American workers have lost a program that helped provide essential education and job training."
"I believe these programs are important to American workers and to the health of our economy, which is why I continue to support proven, bipartisan programs like TAA. I am hopeful that we can work towards an extension of TAA in the future, and I urge my colleagues in the House to pass legislation to continue the TAA program that has been so important to those hardest hit in our economic downturn."
