Call Your Senator: Vote on TPP Fast Track is TODAY 12 May 2015

Share

The Senate is vote TODAY on whether to grant President Obama fast track authority on negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is a huge potential free trade agreement affecting large sectors of our economy. With “fast-track” the President can submit the treaty to Congress for consideration and it must be submitted on the first day the legislative body is in session. No amendments are possible. The reviewing committees have 45 days to report or discharge the bill, and then each House must vote within 15 days on the bill.

In other words, Congress can deliberate for no more than 90 days and cannot amend the bill in any way.

That means the American public would only have about 15 days to consider the bills, once they landed back in their respective Houses. That is not enough time for mature deliberation on a trade deal that affects trillions of dollars of international commerce and potentially millions of jobs across the Pacific Basin. Why 15 days? Because the negotiations are completely secret: Senators on the Finance Committee can only review parts of the document in secure chambers and are not even allowed to take notes.

For this reason, I strongly urge you to phone your Senator and speak out against Fast Track authority. You don’t have to be against TPP to be against Fast Track. But the American people deserve the right and the time to consider and debate the implications of so momentous a treaty.

To facilitate your efforts, I am including a list of sitting US Senators and their contact information. Thanks to the Office of Representative Alan Grayson for the information:
