In re-vote, US House passes key trade promotion bill

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks to the media during her weekly news conference on Capitol Hill on June 18, 2015 in Washington, DCUS lawmakers voted Thursday to give President Barack Obama fast-track authority to negotiate a major trans-Pacific trade accord, moving it closer to his desk after a dramatic defeat last week. Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) narrowly passed the House of Representatives by 218 votes to 208 as a stand-alone bill, after congressional leaders uncoupled it from a worker-assistance program that crashed to defeat Friday when most Democrats voted against it in order to block the trade package. TPA now heads to the US Senate, where it could receive a vote as early as next week.
