Friends of the Earth Calls for House to Reject Trade Promotion Authority

WASHINGTON - At the urging of President Obama, Speaker John Boehner and Congressman Paul Ryan are asking the U.S. House of Representatives to approve “Fast Track” or trade promotion authority legislation today. If approved, Fast Track would expedite congressional approval of two massive trade deals without amendment or proper consideration. The historical record shows that it is almost impossible for Congress to reject any trade deal under Fast Track procedural rules.
