Tell your members of Congress to vote “No!” on Fast Track before it’s too late.
The Hatch/Wyden/Ryan Fast Track bill was introduced in Congress today; the threat is now very real.
Fast Track was born in the 1970s when trade negotiations were mostly about quotas and tariffs. It wasn’t such a good idea then, and today it is an even worse idea.
Here’s why: In addition to keeping Congress and the public in the dark, Fast Track was designed to create a special insider role for more than 500 corporate lobbyists who now function as official U.S. “trade advisers.”
That means that when Fast Track is in place, lobbyists get to shape U.S. trade policy—not Congress, and not the American people. (We’re not even allowed to read the text of what’s being negotiated.)
