Tell Congress: NO Extension of 'FAST TRACK' for Bush

Using the form below, or a personalized version, please send a letter to Congress.

Fast Track — the outdated, outrageous law that Richard Nixon cooked up to take away Congress' constitutional authority over trade policy — expired on June 30, 2007. 

Surprise, surprise.  President Bush wants Congress to hand him a blank check of more Fast Track so he can do more of the same NAFTA-style deals for his big corporate buddies.

With Fast Track expired, we have a once-in-a-decade opportunity to fix the current devastating rules of the global economy — and your voice is the only way to make a real difference! 

Please use the form below to let your representatives know that you absolutely oppose any more Fast Track, and that it must be replaced with a better system that will help us create fair trade agreements. This form will send the letter to your Representative and to both of your Senators.

Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation

Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.

You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
