UK PM Theresa May Outlines 'Key Changes' in Brexit Plan

Speaking to  U.K. Parliament  members Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May outlined what she called  "key changes"  to her Brexit policy.  They include the government being more to open to engaging lawmakers in Brexit negotiations, committing to protecting workers' rights and resolving the Northern Ireland  border issue .  Perhaps most interestingly, May also said her government will waive the planned  registration fee  for the millions of  EU nationals  who want to keep living in the U.K. That "settled status" fee would have broken down to about $84 for people older than 16.  The prime minister also steered clear of ruling out a  "no-deal"  Brexit.

That option would mean a messy separation, resulting in the U.K. breaking out of the European Union with no deal at all on the March 29 deadline.  May's original Brexit plan failed a  Parliament vote  last week, and she narrowly survived a subsequent  no-confidence  vote.  The British government and EU leaders have already approved a preliminary Brexit deal, but they still need Parliament's blessing before it can move forward.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
