Submission + - TPP Fast-Track Bill Hits US Congress

Crayz9000 writes: Slashdot previously covered the unwanted elements of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. Now a bill has hit the floor of the US Congress which would grant Congress the ability to fast-track it and future trade agreements into becoming law. Fight for the Future has a tool to allow US citizens to look up and contact their Congressmen. Full text of the bill is available on the Senate site. From the Senate brief:

WASHINGTON — Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT), Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) joined together today to introduce legislation that will establish strong rules for trade negotiations and Congressional approval of trade pacts, to deliver trade agreements that boost U.S. exports and create American jobs.

"Create jobs", of course, being the catch-all euphemism for enriching Big Media.
