Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA)
FTAC recently held an informational meeting with Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) on Runaway Production and the 301(a) petition.  While we were very encouraged by Rep. Sherman's insight and concern on this topic, it became clear that the Congressman wants to get a true reading of the amount of support we have among the rank and file members of the film industry.

Contact Rep. Sherman and let him know that you encourage his support of FTAC and the section 301(a) petition to return film & television jobs to the USA, . Thank you.

Senator John Kerry
The 301 (a) is not a radical idea. In fact, it’s so mainstream that it can be found as part of Senator John Kerry’s economic trade proposal:

”Enact A Six-Point Plan To Enforce Existing Trade Agreements And Laws.” Senator Kerry’s plan includes:

* Push the administration to live up to its responsibility to enforce existing trade laws - like the Super 301 process - which is the least they can do for American workers struggling to stay competitive in a global economy.
   * Increased resources for trade enforcement and action at the World Trade Organization.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
The Governor has made stemming the tide of runaway production a high priority. “We want to make California again the entertainment capital of the world," the Governor said. "There are so many people that are out of work in Hollywood. People want jobs."

Tell the Governor there is a better way, the Section 301. Tell him, He can terminate Outsourcing (Runaway Production) Like the Motion Picture Association of American (MPAA) has Piracy, with this powerful trade remedy.

Make it clear to the Governor that this remedy will cost the taxpayers nothing. Ask him to support FTAC’s 301a petition.
