First daughter Ivanka Trump has found some success on Capitol Hill, following the House’s passage of a measure benefiting female entrepreneurs.
The advisor to the president helped push the Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act through through the lower chamber on Friday.
The bipartisan legislation comes as her husband Jared Kushner saw his own bipartisan criminal justice reform bill signed by the president.
The Ivanka-backed bill would move some government funds, usually spent on foreign aid, to areas promoting female-owned businesses around the world.
The Senate is expected to hold a formal vote on it in the coming weeks.
