Inside U.S. Trade is reporting that Speaker Pelosi is cool to suggestions that trade policy be passed only with a majority of the majority Dems supporting, such as a resolution on Fast Track suggested by Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) to that effect. At a Friday press briefing, she said:
“I don’t think that that’s going to be the case,” she said in a press conference with the other members of the leadership when asked about the idea. “I would encourage my colleagues not to be proposing resolutions that say the majority of the majority does this or that.” Pelosi said she plans to discuss issues in the Democratic Caucus and jointly reach a position on how to proceed.
“I have to take into consideration something broader than the majority of the majority of the Democratic Caucus” when deciding what legislation to advance, she said.
