On April 16, 2015, the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) applauded the introduction of bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation, Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015. 

“Trade Promotion Authority is essential for the conclusion of high-standard, 21st-century trade agreements,” says Julia K. Hughes, President of USFIA. “The fashion industry applauds the introduction of TPA and urges Congress to pass the legislation as soon as possible so we can see the swift conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other key trade negotiations.”
