    LIBERALS PROPOSE FAST-TRACKING TREATIES



    LIBERALS PROPOSE FAST-TRACKING TREATIES

    By Cliff Kincaid

    The liberal Brookings Institution has come up with a controversial way to get costly and unpopular treaties ratified by the U.S. Senate. Their answer is to bypass the constitutional requirement that treaties obtain two-thirds of the vote of the Senate before passage by redefining the treaties as statutes. Then, they would only need a bare majority for passage in both Houses of Congress, which just happen to be controlled by Democrats.

    Such an approach would mean quicker and easier passage of controversial and expensive measures that, if debated as treaties in the Senate, might take too long and upset and alarm too many Americans.

    By submitting a new global warming treaty as a statute, the Brookings scholars argue, the Congress can act more quickly on the measure.

    They specifically cite a U.N. climate conference scheduled for December, “when the international community is scheduled to gather in Copenhagen, Denmark, to negotiate a replacement for the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.

    This logic, of course, might be applied to other controversial treaties

    Like the SPP and TransAtlantic Partnership
