While President Obama called for sweeping new regulations on the financial sector today, he continues to move forward with free trade agreements begun under the Bush administration.
One of the trade agreements currently in process being considered by the US Congress is the US-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, although Obama retains ‘fast track’ power to push the trade agreement through at his will.
Larry Burns, the head of the Council on Hemispheric Affairs, told KBOO that he sees very little change between Bush and Obama in regards to Colombia and free trade agreements.

The Senate has passed A bill that allows the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco, including new dissolvable tobacco products packaged to look like mints or candy. It’s being called the strongest anti-tobacco measure since the U-S Surgeon General said smoking causes lung cancer more than 40 years ago.

The U.S. House of Representatives took one more look at legislation that would give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulatory authority over cigarettes and other tobacco products from ingredients to labeling and marketing. KBOO reporter EmMarie Badio has more.
