Letter to Congress: TPA 'Fast Track'

Here is a letter that I have drafted to send to my Congressional Representative concerning the currently debated Trade Promotion Authority. Please copy it and send it to your Congressional Representative.

Find your rep:

Read the Constitution Article 2 section 2


I strongly urge you to do everything in your power to prevent the passage of the Senate's trade promotion authority bill.

As advertised, the bill is a clear violation of Article II, section II of the Constitution. Without both the ability to approve AND comment, then the Senate is unable to perform their Constitutional duties with regard to treaties.

Again, as a resident of the <DISTRICT> Congressional District of <STATE>, I encourage you to fully oppose this de facto Amendment by legislation. It is not within the power of the Congress to pass, and so it must not be.

Thank you,
