Recently, one of the hot topics identified by the Pro Recommendation Engine was on Trade & Commerce. From Morning Trade author By Adam Behsudi, with help from Sabrina Rodriguez,  

“The Trump administration is hoping to ramp up pressure on moving USMCA forward in Congress as lawmakers return to Washington this week. Several items on the to-do list for USMCA are crossed off or nearly done: The U.S. International Trade Commission report is in, Mexico is poised to pass a required new labor law, and Vice President Mike Pence has launched the promotional roadshow. 
Procedurally, there isn’t anything holding up Congress from taking it up, but there isn’t quite the wherewithal to do so among House Democrats. 
‘The path is open, and the question is, will [Congress] do something, or will they put it in a drawer?’ notes Shannon O’Neil, an expert on global trade and the U.S.-Mexico relationship at the Council on Foreign Relations.” 


With features like Hot Topics and our team of policy-specific reporters, the new Pro platform provides you with the context, insight, and intel you need to understand the full picture of what’s happening in policy.
