Dear ONE Member,
This Saturday at 1:27 AM, we scored a crucial victory against poverty as Congress passed important trade legislation.
The final votes for the bill were:
Yea
Nay
House of Representatives
212
184
Senate
79
9
When ONE Members first took action to protect the “third-country fabric” provision of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) in September, it was little more than an obscure clause in a massive trade bill. Thanks in part to the hundreds of thousands of letters ONE Members sent to Congress, we were able to help get this important provision on the radar.
I just got this in my email and I am thrilled!!
