Bill Sponsorship: blocking NAFTA Superhighway & North American Union
Source: Resolution against the NAFTA Superhighway (H.CON.RES.40)
This resolution urges disengaging from the NAFTA Superhighway System and the North American because these proposals threaten U.S. sovereignty:
  • Whereas US trade deficits with Mexico and Canada have significantly increased since the implementation of NAFTA;
  • Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System from the west coast of Mexico through the US and into Canada has been suggested as part of a North American Union to facilitate trade;
  • Whereas the State of Texas has already begun planning of the Trans-Texas Corridor, a major multi-modal transportation project beginning at the US-Mexico border, which would serve as an initial section of a NAFTA Superhighway System;
  • Whereas it could be particularly difficult for Americans to collect insurance from Mexican companies which employ Mexican drivers involved in accidents;
  • Whereas future unrestricted foreign trucking can act collaterally as a conduit for illegal drugs, illegal human smuggling, and terrorist activities; and
  • Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System would likely include be controlled by foreign management, which threatens the sovereignty of the US:
  • Now, therefore, be it Resolved: that the US should not engage in the construction of a NAFTA Superhighway System;
  • that the US should not allow the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) to implement further regulations that would create a North American Union with Mexico and Canada; and
  • the President should indicate strong opposition to these acts or any other proposals that threaten the sovereignty of the United States.
