Trade Promotion Authority, also known as Fast Track, could come up for a vote as early as April 13th. Under this proposed legislation, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement would be a near certainty.

Right now, corporate lobbyists are pressuring Senator Ron Wyden, the lead Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, to sign off on Fast Track legislation by Easter Sunday. So far, Senator Wyden has resisted the pressure, but if he gives in, the bill could be marked up on April 13th.
Senator Wyden needs to hear from the faith community. The senator is our best hope for preventing Fast Track legislation from moving forward.
Click here to sign the petition to Senator Wyden, urging him to stand strong against Fast Track.
Then take a few minutes to call Senator Wyden. Although he may not be your senator, due to his role on the Senate Finance Committee, he needs to hear from all of us.
