House Extends Timeline for Reconsideration of Trade Package until July 30th

This afternoon the House of Representatives approved a rule that extends time for a second vote on Trade Adjustment Assistance legislation which the House failed to pass on Friday.  By a vote of 236-189, the House voted to allow for reconsideration of the trade legislation before July 30th.  The next six weeks promise to be full of interesting legislative twists and turns as supporters of the trade agenda seek a path forward.
