According to the Food Democracy Action team, “Earlier this morning the U.S. Senate voted 60 to 37 to pass cloture on Fast Track authority on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). Today’s vote was a procedural vote on cloture, which limits debate on this secret international trade agreement, the language of which, the American public has not been allowed to read.
This vote, and the secrecy surrounding the Fast Track agreement, is an absolute betrayal of the American people that undermines representative democracy and the important consumer protection laws that local, state and federal elected officials have passed to protect our health, environment and economy.

Today, your Senators essentially voted to turn over our sovereign laws to international tribunals that do not answer to your elected officials and whose rulings can not only supersede the American court system, but force local, state and federal governments to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to corporations for “lost profits” if they don’t like how a law impacts their toxic products.”
