Toledo, OH — Lucas County Commissioners will hold a press conference at 10:45AM Tuesday morning on a resolution opposing “fast track” trade negotiating authority that they will consider at their regular meeting that same morning.

The commissioners will call upon elected officials in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives to oppose “Fast Track” legislation that would keep trade policy-making behind closed doors and would otherwise fail to restructure the misguided and failed trade negotiating policies of the past.

When: Tuesday, April 28th @ 10:45AM (just prior to commission meeting)

Where: Inside lobby of One Government Center, Toledo, OH
