earlier after the approval of the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico But senators said it could serve as a model of interparty collabo ration next year when Republi cans take control of both chambers of Congress for the first time in 40 years and square off against the Democratic White House This is bipartisanship This was about jobs and opportunities for said incoming
