Maine to Congress: Don't pull a fast one on America by fast tracking trade deals

(UPDATES with new 9th graf to add the senate approved the resolution too.)

Maine lawmakers want Congress to vet every word of an upcoming trade deal to make sure it doesn't harm American families.

Mainers don't think members of Congress should pull a fast one on American workers with "fast track" legislation that doesn't let them examine trade deals before they're passed.

Many in Congress seem open to approving fast track for trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Maine's state lawmakers think that's a bad idea.
