Fast Track Vote

— Host Alex Chadwick talks to Congressman Sander Levin, a Democrat from Michigan, who voted against renewing President Clinton's fast track authority, in a House Ways and Means Committee vote yesterday. That authority allows a President to negotiate trade agreements, which are then presented to Congress for a straight yes or no vote, with no opportunity for amendments.
