Switzerland's lower house of parliament on Tuesday rejected a bill aimed at bringing the country closer to handing over the names of thousands of alleged American tax dodgers to U.S. authorities.

Several inaccuracies in the WSJ story.

Final vote in the Swiss parliament is on 17th June. Meanwhile horse trading between the political parties who want some concessions.

The parliament can say no, or say yes, or yes but referendum prerequisite.
