(MISSOURINET) –  The U.S. Senate has passed legislation designed to prevent a railroad shutdown. The bill passed does not include paid sick days that rail workers asked for.

It is being pushed by the Biden Administration, and Reuters (ROY-ters) reports a nationwide railroad strike “could freeze 30 percent” of the nation’s cargo shipments by weight, cause even more inflation, and strand millions of Amtrak and commuter passengers.

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley voted “no” on blocking the strike:

Missouri fellow Republican Roy Blunt voted in favor of the bill. The agreement heads to the President.
