Trump agenda pushes paid family leave, job training, ‘right to try’ bill

President Trump didn’t roll out big new initiatives in his State of the Union address but called for help clearing the decks of several popular and bipartisan goals that have been stuck in Congress for years.

Beyond immigration and infrastructure plans that dominate the 2018 agenda, Mr. Trump sought to break the Capitol Hill logjam on paid family leave, job training and a “right to try” bill to give terminally ill patients access to experimental drugs and treatments.

He also vowed action to lower the sky-high prescription drug prices Americans pay compared to what people in other countries pay for the same drugs. The efforts will include the administration, Congress and state governments, said White House officials.

However, the White House faces the same obstacles that blocked many of these ideas in the past, including legislative gridlock that has intensified under Mr. Trump.
