WASHINGTON — Congress passed trade legislation Thursday that extends benefits to U.S. companies making apparel in sub-Saharan Africa and separately helps U.S. textile producers and apparel importers doing business in Central America.
The bill, which now goes to President Obama for his signature, also extends a ban on imports from Myanmar that was imposed in 2003 after a military junta began repressing human rights, despite the current regime’s recent reforms.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
