Speaker of the House John Boehner walks to the House Chamber where members of congress were voting on a package of trade bills in the U.S. Capitol in WashingtonBy Krista Hughes and David Lawder WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. lawmakers on Tuesday extended until late July a deadline for a second vote on legislation central to President Barack Obama’s Pacific Rim trade pact, giving supporters time to obtain more backing for it. At the same time, further delays will squeeze the time frame for Obama to hammer out the 12-nation pact, a signature project that was dealt a major setback in the House of Representatives last week by the president’s own Democrats. In that vote, many Democrats opposed the worker aid program as a way to block a companion measure to streamline the passage of trade deals through the U.S. Congress.
