Letter from ME State Rep. Sharon Treat and the Forum on Democracy and Trade to Rep. Waxman

May 3rd, 2011

Rep. Henry Waxman
Chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce
2204 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515 

Dear Representative Waxman:

As USTR prepares its negotiating text for the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), it has come under pressure to include pharmaceutical provisions similar to those found in the US-Korea FTA (Korus FTA). State legislators and Governors have previously warned trade negotiators that these types of provisions will threaten US programs that serve low income Americans. Today we are writing to urge you and other Members of Congress to oppose the inclusion of pharmaceutical provisions in the Trans Pacific Partnership, and all future trade agreements.
