House Of Representatives To Vote On Bill To Block Rail Strike Tomorrow

US

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has confirmed that the United States House of Representatives will hold a vote tomorrow to block a rail strike which could happen as early as December 9.

  • Pelosi said: "We must avoid a strike," and will bring the bill to the House floor early tomorrow in order to give the Senate maximum time to address the bill and overcome any opposition.
  • President Biden said after the meeting with Pelosi and other Congressional leaders: "Congress, I think has to act to prevent it. It's not an easy call, but I think we have to do it. The economy is at risk."
  • Biden sought to mitigate some of the political fallout from the progression wing of the Democratic party and acknowledged a perceived inconsistently with his vocally pro-union position in a statement yesterday: “As a proud pro-labor President, I am reluctant to override the ratification procedures and the views of those who voted against the agreement,” but, Biden said, “at this critical moment for our economy… we cannot let our strongly held conviction for better outcomes... hurl this nation into a devastating rail freight shutdown.”
