Members of Congress debated H.Res. 101, a resolution disapproving of the extension of fast-track legislative authority for the president, and H.Res. 146, naming the objectives to be achieved through trade negotiations with Mexico. The House voted 231-192 to allow President Bush authority to negotiate a trade agreement with Mexico that would lower existing trade barriers. The legislation was introduced through the fast-track legislative procedure, in which members of Congress must consider and vote upon legislation within a certain time after its introduction, and may not add amendments to the legislation. H.Res. 146 named several recommendations from Congress on issues to be raised during trade talks with Mexico, including environmental, fair wages, and anti-exploitation provisions for Mexican workers. The House voted overwhelmingly to approve H.Res. 146 naming trade guidelines for negotiations with Mexico. close
