White House: confident free trade pacts will pass

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration said on Tuesday that it expected lawmakers to agree to a compromise package of measures to approve long delayed trade deals with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.

"We're confident that we will have a process that will lead to the passage of all of these measures together," a senior administration official told reporters via conference call.
