US Rep. Camp, Dow CEO At Trade Bill Signing

WASHINGTON (AP) – Dow Chemical Co. CEO Andrew Liveris and U.S. Rep. Dave Camp of Midland joined cabinet members, lawmakers and other dignitaries who watched as President Barack Obama signed off on a new trade deal with South Korea.

Camp is head of the House Ways and Means Committee and strongly supported the trade deal. The Detroit Three automakers and the United Auto Workers union say the pact will make it easier to export vehicles to South Korea.

Camp also was in attendance Friday as Obama signed trade deals with Colombia and Panama at the White House, and when the president signed legislation extending a program to help workers hurt by foreign trade.

Dow Chemical is based in Midland and expects to export more products to South Korea under the new trade deal.
