WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement today after voting in favor of trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea.
“Today’s passage of trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea is welcome news for the American worker. These trade agreements will open more markets overseas for our nation’s agricultural commodities and manufactured goods, increase U.S. exports by an estimated $13 billion, and create and support an estimated 250,000 American jobs. In Kansas alone, the three trade agreements are expected to increase agriculture sales by $129 million per year. When American businesses are given better access to markets, they will succeed, help strengthen our economy and put more people back to work.”
