Congress moves forward on free trade deals
WASHINGTON (CNNMoney) -- The Senate will officially take up three trade deals and a scaled-back version of a jobs retraining program for laid-off workers on Thursday.

Senate negotiators will have to start pounding out the details of the trade deals with South Korea, Colombia and Panama, as well as funding for the jobs retraining program -- whose funding ran dry in February.
