GE Statement On Russia PNTR

GE applauds the U.S. House of Representatives for overwhelmingly passing today legislation to establish permanent normal trade relations (PNTR) with Russia and to repeal the Jackson-Vanik amendment. We urge the U.S. Senate to pass this legislation so U.S. companies and workers can compete in Russia on a level playing field with our global competitors.
