US House Democrats push for vote on China currency

WASHINGTON, June 16 (Reuters) - Democratic leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday said they would try to force a vote on a China currency bill that House members overwhelmingly approved last year but that died in the Senate.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said party members were circulating a “discharge petition” to force Republicans who control the chamber to bring the bill to the floor. That would require 218 signatures, she said. (Reporting by Richard Cowan; writing by Doug Palmer; editing by Eric Beech)
