ABSTRACT

Whether Uruguay Round Agreements Required Ratification as a Treaty: Memorandum to Ambassador Michael Kantor, United States Trade Representative [November 22, 1994]   [open pdf - 80KB]

"This memorandum supplements our earlier opinion on the question whether the Uruguay Round Agreements concluded under the auspices of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (the 'GATT') must be ratified as a treaty. It replies to two later papers by Professor Laurence H. Tribe, and his testimony before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, that have disputed our conclusion on that subject. After considering Professor Tribe's arguments, we again conclude that the Uruguay Round Agreements may constitutionally be adopted by the passage of implementing legislation by both Houses of Congress, together with signing by the President."
