Joe Heck Votes to Advance Job Shipping-Secret Trade Deal

Las Vegas, NV – Today, Rep. Joe Heck voted for the second time for Trade Promotion Authority, legislation paving the way for a secret trade deal that could result in thousands of American jobs being shipped overseas.

While Heck has insisted that voting for TPA will bring more transparency to future trade deals, the truth is: a vote for fast track is a vote to advance the Trans-Pacific trade deal before the American people even know what is in the agreement.

“Joe Heck has now voted twice to advance a secret trade deal that could result in the loss of thousands of American jobs,” said Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Zach Hudson.  “Nevadans deserve to know what is in this trade deal before Joe Heck votes to rubber stamp it and ship their jobs overseas.”
