YTP Trade on the Hill: What is the Role of Congress in Trade Policymaking?

The U.S. Capitol Visitor Center First St NE Room HC-8 Washington, DC 20515
The U.S. Constitution grants Congress authority to regulate international trade including establishing tariffs, drafting and implementing trade agreements, and other provisions affecting commerce within the United States. Through Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and other legislation, Congress has delegated authority to steer trade policy to the President, but in light of events surrounding China, NAFTA and trade enforcement measures, there are renewed efforts for Congress to reclaim the wheel. Join us on June 15th as we explore the role of Congress in trade policy with former senior Congressional trade staff.
