Harry Reid Seeks Delay on Fast-Track Trade Bill

Monday, 04 May 2015 06:26 PM

U.S. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid wants to delay legislation granting President Barack Obama "fast-track" trade negotiating authority needed to complete a Pacific Rim deal until bills to authorize highway funding and renew a domestic surveillance program are debated.

An aide to Reid confirmed he would try to delay the "Trade Promotion Authority" bill until the other two measures are handled by the Senate, which could put off the trade measure until at least June.

Many Democrats in Congress are lining up against the trade bill, but it might have enough support to eventually pass the Senate.
