Senate Ignores Mass Opposition to Fast Track

WASHINGTON - Today the Senate voted 60 to 37 to jump a procedural hurdle on the path that will send Fast Track trade promotion legislation to President Obama for his signature. Senators voted for the bill that will facilitate the later approval of the Trans Pacific Partnership, TTIP and other environmentally destructive trade deals now under negotiation.

Fast Track is widely opposed by the environmental community and broad swaths of civil society, including labor, civil rights, family farm, food safety, Internet freedom, senior citizen, public health and consumer advocates.
