Key Trade Bills Pending Signature From President Obama

Senate and House have now passed H.R. 1295, the Trade Preferences Extensions Act of 2015, as expected with a vote of 286-138. This comes just after Congress passed the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill in separate legislation, also known as “fast-track”. This bill would allow the President to submit a trade deal to Congress for an up or down vote with not only limited debate but no amendments.
