Press Release: CPA Gives American Trade Hero Awards to Reps. Lipinski and Brooks

Washington~ The Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) is pleased to announce that Representative Dan Lipinski (D-IL-03) and Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL-05) will each receive a 2018 American Trade Hero Award.
“We are honored to present Representatives Dan Lipinski and Mo Brooks with our 2018 American Trade Hero Award,” said Michael Stumo, CEO of CPA. “Their unwavering commitment to supporting America’s producers is truly commendable. CPA is hopeful that other members of Congress will follow their leadership on these crucial issues.”

CPA recognizes the efforts of these two Representatives in support of trade and manufacturing policies that benefit America’s manufactures, workers, farmers, and ranchers.

“The American Trade Hero award is presented by CPA to Representatives or Senators who take action to correct failed trade policies, and who support domestic producers fighting for survival in the face of foreign mercantilism,” said Dan DiMicco, Chairman of CPA. “Congressmen Lipinski and Brooks understand that trade deficits are killing American jobs and are working hard to fix the problem.”

Representative Dan Lipinski has a strong voting record with CPA. He has opposed measures like Trade Promotion Authority and repeal of country of origin labeling, and he has voted against trade agreements with South Korea, Panama, Columbia, and Peru.

Representative Mo Brooks sponsored a critical House resolution to balance trade, which prioritized the reduction and elimination of America’s troubling international trade deficit.

 Reps. Lipinski and Brooks will receive their awards during the 2018 CPA Trade Conference, March 12-14, 2018, in Washington DC.


CPA is the leading national, bipartisan organization exclusively representing domestic producers and workers across many industries and sectors of the U.S. economy.
