Late Thursday evening, on July 26, 2007, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Hunter-Kaptur amendment to the Transportation Appropriations Bill (HR 3074) by an overwhelming margin, 362-63. The amendment was introduced by Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (D-OH). In a total repudiation of NAFTA, our failed trade policies, and the Bush Administration’s unilateral and aggressive fast tracking of the NAFTA Superhighways, the House successfully moved to de-fund them. Now it heads to the Senate.
