H. CON. RES. 40

Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not
engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement
(NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with
Mexico and Canada.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 22, 2007

Mr. GOODE (for himself, Mr. WAMP, Mr. JONES of North Carolina, Mr.
PAUL, Mr. STEARNS, Mr. DUNCAN, and Ms. FOXX) submitted the following
concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on
Transportation and Infrastructure, and in addition to the Committee
on Foreign Affairs, for a period to be subsequently determined by the
Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall
within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned

CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not
engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement
(NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with
Mexico and Canada.

Whereas the United States Departments of State, Commerce, and
Homeland Security participated in the formation of the Security and
Prosperity Partnership (SPP) on March 23, 2005, representing a tri-
lateral agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico
designed, among other things, to facilitate common regulatory schemes
between these countries;

Whereas reports issued by the SPP indicate that it has implemented
regulatory changes among the three countries that circumvent United
States trade, transportation, homeland security, and border security
functions and that the SPP will continue to do so in the future;

Whereas the actions taken by the SPP to coordinate border security by
eliminating obstacles to migration between Mexico and the United
States actually makes the United States-Mexico border less secure
because Mexico is the primary source country of illegal immigrants
into the United States;

Whereas according to the Department of Commerce, United States trade
deficits with Mexico and Canada have significantly increased since
the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement
(NAFTA);

Whereas the economic and physical security of the United States is
impaired by the potential loss of control of its borders attendant to
the full operation of NAFTA and the SPP;

Whereas the regulatory and border security changes implemented and
proposed by the SPP violate and threaten United States sovereignty;

Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System from the west coast of Mexico
through the United States and into Canada has been suggested as part
of a North American Union to facilitate trade between the SPP
countries;

Whereas the State of Texas has already begun planning of the Trans-
Texas Corridor, a major multi-modal transportation project beginning
at the United States-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 in the United States, which would likely
increase the insurance rates for American drivers;

Whereas future unrestricted foreign trucking into the United States
can pose a safety hazard due to inadequate maintenance and
inspection, and can act collaterally as a conduit for the entry into
the United States of illegal drugs, illegal human smuggling, and
terrorist activities; and

Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System would likely include funds from
foreign consortiums and be controlled by foreign management, which
threatens the sovereignty of the United States: Now, therefore, be
it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That--

(1) the United States should not engage in the construction of a
North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System;

(2) the United States 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

(3) the President of the United States should indicate strong
opposition to these acts or any other proposals that threaten the
sovereignty of the United States.
