The Senate Finance Committee has scheduled a hearing on the U.K.’s decision to exit the European Union.
The committee will hear from lawmakers on Capitol Hill, who are concerned that the Brexit vote may be the start of a trade war.
The UK, a member of the European Economic Area, is now required to have access to the single market and the customs union.
The U.KS. is one of the most heavily traded countries in the world.
The Senate Finance committee voted to hold a hearing Monday to examine the decision by the U:S.
government to leave the European Community.
The bill is expected to come before the full Senate.
As part of the vote, Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) asked committee chair Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) why he voted against the Brexit bill.
Corker said he did not know.
Carper said he voted for it because he believed the U.:S.
was better off leaving the EU.
Corker and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have previously clashed over trade issues, including Sanders’ call for a new “free trade” deal with Canada and the former president’s opposition to free trade deals.
