Friends of the Earth Welcomes Scuttling of Trade Package

WASHINGTON - Today, U.S. House of Representatives deferred a final decision on a legislative trade package including Trade Adjustment Assistance, Fast Track trade promotion authority, and Customs bills.

Friends of the Earth President Erich Pica had this to say:

Today’s move to delay final decision on the trade package represents a significant victory in the fight to ensure that toxic trade agreements like the TPP do not get bulldozed through Congress.
