H.R. 2146: Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act

Jun 24, 2015 at 4:03 p.m. ET. On the Motion (Motion to Concur in the House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2146) in the Senate.

This was the Senate's final vote on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal currently being negotiated. H.R. 2146 was originally introduced as a bill to address issues with retirement funds of federal law enforcement officers and firefighters. The House had added TPA to the end of H.R. 2146 and passed both components together. With this vote the bill was sent to the President for a signature.

The Senate previously voted on TPA when it was combined with Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) in a different bill, but TAA was voted down in the House. There was also a previous cloture vote.

This vote was related to a bill introduced by Rep. David Reichert [R-WA8, 2005-2018] on April 30, 2015, H.R. 2146: [Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and] Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act.
