Pence, others urge progress on trade agreements

– Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and the governors of 13 other states have sent a letter to President Barack Obama and congressional leaders urging them to make progress on three trade agreements that they say could help the economy.

The agreements are the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is under negotiation with 11 countries; the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, a proposed U.S.-European Union trade agreement in the midst of negotiations; and the Trade in Services Agreement.

Pence says international trade is vital to Indiana’s economic growth and fiscal prosperity. In 2012, Indiana exported $34.4 billion to countries around the world.

The letter also was signed by the governors of Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and others.
