WASHINGTON — The Senate Finance Committee passed a series of trade-related bills Wednesday that will have significant implications for the fashion industry, including granting permanent normal trade relations to Russia and extending the third-country fabric provision for eligible sub-Saharan African countries.
The committee’s markup and approval of the measures, with bipartisan support, was considered a major accomplishment, particularly in a polarizing presidential election year. The bills will now move to the full Senate for a vote. The House Ways & Means Committee has not yet scheduled its own markup of any of 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)
