to prohibit the Secretary of Transportation from granting authority to a motor carrier domiciled in Mexico to operate beyond United States municipalities and commercial zones on the United States-Mexico border unless expressly authorized by Congress
On motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill, as amended Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays: (2/3 required): 395 – 18 (Roll no. 575).
Motion to reconsider laid on the table Agreed to without objection.
6:46 P.M. – Considered as unfinished business.
Texas members of Congress represented a good portion of the opposition to this politically motivated measure, which tells the world that the United States is a trade negotiations scofflaw.
