Pennsylvania Sends a Message to Congress

In the wake of the Deathstar deal and the imminent expiration of Fast Track on June 30th, the Pennsylvania House overwhelmingly passed a resolution (166-30) calling on Congress to reject Fast Track and replace it with an open and democratic system that includes states in the process. The resolution itself had over 100 co-sponsors!

In a press release (PDF) from the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, President William George explains:

"Approval of this resolution sends a strong message to Pennsylvania's Congressional Delegation to reject the extension of Fast Track and replace it with a genuine democratic model which will benefit the working families of Pennsylvania."

That delegation includes influential members of the House Ways and Means committee, Reps. Allyson Schwartz (D-Pa.) and Phil English (R-Pa.). Pennsylvania has now become the ninth state to send the message to Congress that Fast Track has got to go.
