House Approves Aid for Workers Hit by Trade Deals

Thursday, 25 Jun 2015 01:04 PM

The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday voted to renew assistance for American workers hurt by liberalized trade, an important step in President Barack Obama's drive for a massive Pacific Rim trade deal.

The House approved the measure in a 286-138 vote.

Without action by Congress, the worker aid program would have expired on Sept. 30, just as the Obama administration could be trying to wrap up a 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal encompassing 40 percent of the world's economy and ranging from Chile to Japan.

The Senate passed the legislation on Wednesday. With House passage, it now goes to Obama for signing into law.
