Welles Orr Quoted Regarding Pending Senate Trade Promotion Authority Debate in Law360

"A Trade Debate 13 Years in the Making: What to Watch For"
05.21.15Welles Orr was quoted regarding the U.S. Senate's pending debate to renew the White House's Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the first time since 2002. Even with a lengthy debate ahead, eventual passage of the TPA in the Senate is fairly certain, Orr said, but the status of the vote in the U.S. House of Representatives is far more uncertain. "There's some concern in the Republican leadership of the House that ... some votes of Republicans aren't quite there yet," he said. "So this may help catalyze Republicans to whip up more Republicans. But it's also an unsolicited signal from the Senate side the White House has to work on delivering Democrats in the House."
