WASHINGTON — The House passed legislation on Friday that would remove Cold War restrictions to trade with Russia and grant permanent normal trade relations to the country, giving U.S. companies access to benefits for which Russia agreed when it joined the World Trade Organization in August.
The House passed the bill, which would also extend PNTR to Moldova, on a 365-43 vote. The Senate is expected to take up the bill in the lame-duck session before the end of the year and the White House said this week it strongly supports the legislation.

"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)
