Congress's role in trade policy is based upon
express powers set out in
Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Congress
exercises this power by enacting laws that authorize trade programs
and govern trade policy. Congress also sets trade negotiating
objectives in law; requires formal consultation from and an
opportunity to advise on trade negotiations with the Executive
Branch; and conducts oversight hearings on trade programs and
How U.S. trade policy is fashioned and implemented has far-reaching
impact. The instructor examines Congress's role in trade policy by
focusing on its authority; its goals and objectives; and its
interplay with the President and the Executive Branch.
