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.
