Sen. Burt Jones (R – Jackson) was recently appointed to represent Georgia on the Intergovernmental Policy Advisory Committee on Trade (IGPAC) on behalf of United States Trade Representative, Ambassador Robert Lighthizer.
“I am honored and humbled to be appointed to such a prestigious committee,” said Sen. Jones. “It’s vital to address state and local issues at a higher level in order to receive the best outcome for our citizens by recommending policy changes to those who serve on the federal level. I look forward to working with leaders across our nation to provide insight on issues that we face as a state to best advise representatives on trade.”
The IGPAC is a branch of the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) that addresses state and local government trade policy matters with the USTR. Sen. Jones will begin his service for the IGPAC’s new charter term on April 4, 2018, and will serve in this capacity along with representing the 25th district in the Georgia Senate.
