US House Rejects Fast Track for TPP

12 06 2015

Amazing news: Today, the House rejected the Fast Track package.

A key procedural vote failed in the House. This means that the package that would have put the Trans-Pacific Partnership on the fast track to approval did not pass today. This huge win is due to the tremendous public opposition to the TPP that Food & Water Watch supporters were instrumental in communicating to key members of Congress.

Let me be clear: this fight is not over. The threat of TPP — a trade pact that could undermine key consumer, public health and environmental protections — is not gone for good. But we can take a deep breath and know that our hard work paid off today.

Send an email to members of Congress to reinforce our message: Say NO to the package of bills that would Fast Track secret trade deals.

Thanks for all you do,

Wenonah Hauter
Executive Director
Food & Water Watch
