DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) -- Again seeking the support of labor, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton says she would call a "time out" on trade agreements if she wins the White House.
Clinton spoke today before a regional conference of the United Auto Workers in Iowa. She said she would want to see if the deals are draining jobs from the U.S.
Clinton promised the crowd she would appoint an official to ensure that trade agreement provisions designed to protect labor and environmental standards are enforced by groups such as the World Trade Organization and the International Labor Organization.
Clinton also said she would continue to push for tougher fuel efficiency standards for autos, regulations that both the auto industry and UAW have been leery of.
