The deals, which would boost U.S. exports by $13 billion, were originally negotiated by the Bush administration but have been held up for years by an impasse over the renewal of an aid program for workers who lost their jobs because of outsourcing, as well as concerns among Democrats and organized labor over continued anti-union violence in Colombia.

While the trade deals are expected to pass with bipartisan support, the tougher fight will be on renewal of Trade Adjustment Assistance; many Republicans have expressed opposition to the program, arguing that it is unnecessary and ineffective.

Also happening on the Hill this week is a vote Tuesday night on the Senate’s China currency bill. Worth watching will be whether House Republican leaders, who have pledged not to allow a vote on the measure, reconsider that decision in light of calls from some rank-and-file members to bring the bill to the floor.

The Senate will also hold a procedural vote Tuesday on President Obama’s jobs package. The measure — which comes after some late-night wrangling by Senate leaders late last week and an unprecedented rules change — is not expected to pass, but keep an eye on which Democrats (particularly those facing tough reelection bids in 2012) come out in favor of the plan.

And on Friday, the House will take up the Protect Life Act, a measure that would prohibit federal funding of abortions under the national health-care law and also block funding from being withheld from institutions that are opposed to providing abortions. The bill marks the first time since February that an abortion-related measure has come to the floor; expect to see some heated debate and ramped-up involvement by outside groups.
