151 House Democrats Say 'No' to Fast Track Authority

November 13, 2013

Reps. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) and George Miller (D-Calif.) wrote a letter to President Barack Obama, signed by 149 other House Democrats, opposing renewing the traditional model of "Fast Track" trade promotion authority for the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) or any other future trade deals. The letter expresses concerns that the procedure undemocratically denies Congress its rightful role in foreign policy and ignores congressional prerogatives to make policy on a host of other issues (such as labor, finance, health care and energy policy).
