US House tries again on trade promotion package

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 vote again Thursday on key trade legislation, signaling congressional leaders’ confidence they have sufficient votes to pass the measure which stalled last week, embarrassing President Barack Obama. The bill in question is known as Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which would boost Obama’s chances of finalizing a sweeping trade accord with 11 other Pacific nations that he could then bring to Congress for an up-or-down vote. Should it pass the House of Representatives Thursday, it would go to the Senate, which could vote on it as early as next week.
