Summary:
Discusses why trade agreements, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Uruguay Round of Multilateral Trade Negotiations under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, have been treated as Congressional-executive agreements subject to a majority vote of both houses of Congress rather than as treaties requiring a two-thirds vote of the Senate.
