Top Congressional legislators reached a deal earlier today to introduce fast-track legislation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to Congress.
As the ranking Democrat on the Finance Panel, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden was crucial in reaching an agreement between Republicans and Democrats drafting the legislation.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership would be the world’s largest free trade agreement, involving the United States, Canada, Mexico, Vietnam, Japan, and seven other Pacific-rim countries.
It is heavily opposed by environmental groups, American labor unions such as the AFL-CIO, as well as human rights advocates.
The Oregon chapter of the AFL-CIO has staged multiple protests calling for lawmakers to reject the trade deal. 6:44 minutes (6.16 MB)
