Abstract:

This paper explores the politics of the recent fight over the renewal of presidential fast-track trade negotiating authority, renamed "trade promotion authority" (TPA) by the Bush administration. I argue that the key to understanding congressional trade policy decision making during the past decade, including on TPA, lies mainly in domestic politics, and more particularly in developments in the party politics of trade in the House of Represtatives. These partisan trade dynamics differed, however, during the prewsidencies of Bill Clinton and George Bush. While shifts in Democratic support for trade liberalization explain the varying outcomes of the trade battles of the Clinton years, an increase in Republican support for trade liberalization explains the narrow victory of TPA.
