News that the US does not have full powers to sign an agreement has
created a small buzz here today.  The issue concerns the authority to
sign agreements as set out in Circular C-175.   Apparently the US
delegation did have C-175 authority to sign in Beijing in 2012, but
did not get the same authority for this negotiation.
