House passes bill to avert rail strike

The House has passed a bipartisan bill that would prevent a nationwide rail strike.  It passed on a 290 to 137 vote. The measure, H.J. Res 100, would implement a tentative agreement that was recommended by a presidential board, but was rejected by four of the twelve rail unions. 

The bill now heads to the Senate for consideration and will need 60 votes to pass.

National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Kent Bacus says the pressure is on.
