WASHINGTON — A trade bill with duty-free apparel breaks and a renewal of the President’s trade promotion authority cleared Congress Thursday after Senate passage.
The Senate voted 64-34 to send President Bush the controversial measure, with apparel provisions for Andean, Caribbean Basin and sub-Saharan Africa. Bush has said he’s anxious to sign the bill, which he argues will give the economy a lift. With TPA, he maintains the U.S. will more readily be able to negotiate agreements opening foreign markets to American exports.
