Tell U.S. Trade Rep. Froman: Stop Fast-Tracking the TPP

froman.175-x-200.insideAs negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) reportedly near completion, the Obama administration is ramping up calls for a dangerous “fast track” process that would allow the president to sign the bill before Congress can read the final text. The massive free trade agreement is set to be a giant threat to American democracy and sovereignty. The secret trade negotiating process lacks transparency, and the agreement could give multinational corporations the ability to sue a government over policies the corporation thinks is unfair. If alcohol is not exempt from its provisions, the TPP will allow corporations to undermine alcohol regulation and negatively impact public health and safety in the U.S. Send President Obama and U.S. Trade Representative Froman a message: Don't sell out public health. Exclude alcohol from TPP provisions. Don't fast-track the TPP.
