The release of a Trade Promotion Authority bill yesterday, including
provisions to increase Congressional oversight of the trade negotiation
process, is a welcome sign that Congress may be preparing to increase
its oversight over international trade, including trade laws that alter
or restrict our domestic intellectual property laws. Unfortunately, the
bill does not go far enough to ensure public transparency and
participation, and does little to ensure that the products of such
negotiations promote the public interest.
