Charlie Melancon on Free Trade

Democratic Representative (LA-3)


Fight against harmful trade policies like CAFTA

As an economic development expert, small businessman, former state legislator, and former president of the Louisiana sugar cane industry's trade association, I know that job creation begins with education. I know that families and small businesses can't survive without affordable healthcare. I've been a leader in the fight against harmful trade policies like CAFTA that hurt the 27,000 job and $2 billion sugar industry that I formerly represented.
