House Democratic Leader Joins Bid to Upend Trade-Deal Compromise

The top Democrat in the U.S. House said she will back proposed legislation that would slow work on trade deals, raising a challenge to bipartisan bill to give the White House fast-track power over future agreements.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said in an e-mailed statement that a measure to be unveiled Thursday by Representative Sander Levin of Michigan will give Democrats a “a path to yes” on trade legislation.
