Washington, D.C. — Following today’s Senate vote finalizing the historic, unanimous confirmation of Katherine Tai to be the first Asian American woman and the first woman of color to serve as U.S. Trade Representative, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:

“Congratulations to Katherine Tai on her historic confirmation today as U.S. Trade Representative. Tai is committed to increasing transparency and public participation in negotiations, and we look forward to working with her to help implement a new trade model that includes robust and binding climate, environmental, and conservation protections, strong enforcement provisions, and creates good-paying, family-sustaining jobs. The Biden administration has made it clear that we need a whole of government approach to address the climate crisis and we are excited to have Ambassador Tai leading these efforts in trade policy.”
