WASHINGTON, DC -- The Senate has set the stage for final passage of President Obama's trade bill. By a vote of 60 to 37, the Senate approved a motion Tuesday that will allow lawmakers to vote on the legislation Wednesday.

 

Senator Wyden of Oregon made an impassioned plea to his fellow Senators to say yes. "If you believe that Americans should stop the race to the bottom on labor rights, environmental safety rights and human rights --this legislation is a chance to lift global standards up."

 

Thirteen Democrats backed the fast track legislation.  This bill will allow the President to send trade deals to Congress for an up or down vote -- allowing for faster approval for trade agreements.
