WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top Democratic senator on Friday said he was confident the Senate would "overwhelmingly" pass a bill next week to crack down on China's currency practices.
Senator Charles Schumer also told reporters he thought it would be difficult for Republican leaders in the House of Representatives to block the legislation, making it likely it would reach President Barack Obama's desk.
However, Schumer said he didn't know if Obama would sign the bill into law. "They said they're looking at it, so you'll have to ask them," he said.
