Fast-Tracked Trade Deals Rush Us Toward a Toxic Future

WASHINGTON - Today, Senators Hatch (R-Utah), Wyden (D-Ore.), and Ryan (R-Wis.) introduced the Trade Promotion Authority legislation (TPA-2015), which would extend “fast track” negotiating authority for trade deals, including the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). With fast-track, Congress would lose its ability to ensure that trade pacts benefit workers, the environment, and communities around the United States.
