WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that progress was being made to address Democrats’ concerns about a U.S. trade pact with Canada and Mexico, but that it will take time to write the bill and bring it to a vote.

Speaking to reporters at the U.S. Capitol, Pelosi repeated that ensuring enforceability was essential for Democrats to sign on, adding that progress needed to be made in a meeting with the U.S. trade representative on Thursday.
