Monday, May 16, 2005CBC support on CAFTA in flux
A dozen corporate lobbyists, who happen to be black (this is an interesting statement) will start pressing members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to support the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), including those who already have announced their opposition to the measure.
The lobbyists include Jarvis Stewart of Stewart Partners, who represents FedEx and Wal-Mart; Tiffany Moore of the Kellogg Co.; Lionel Johnson of Citigroup; Kimberly Wordard of Wal-Mart; Lauryl Dodson Jackson of PhRMA; Orson Porter of Nike; and Tanya Lombard of Altria. They met Tuesday at Altria’s Washington office.
As a first step in their informal effort, they will request a meeting with the new U.S. trade representative, former Rep. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), to discuss ways to get CBC members to support CAFTA.
