- 'Rangel Predicts Action on Peru Pact' (Associated Press, Edison Lopez)
The U.S. Congress will give priority treatment to approval of a free trade pact between the U.S. and Peru when it reconvenes in September, the powerful head of the Ways and Means Committee promised Monday during a visit to Lima.
"It is a priority when we return to the Congress in September," Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., told reporters after meeting with President Alan Garcia to discuss the agreement.
He was accompanied by Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., and Rep. Allyson Schwartz, D-Pa."
