Timeline and Requirements for Trade Agreements Available.

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

(North American Meat Institute)

A chart mapping the timeline and requirements for trade agreements under TPA-2015 legislation can be found here. Meat Institute members can use this timeline to track progress on U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) ratification. In late May, the Trump Administration sent to Congress the draft statement of administrative action (SAA), and is required to wait 30 days after submission of the draft SAA before sending Congress the draft USMCA implementing legislation. TPA, however, also requires both the House and Senate to be in session on the day draft implementing legislation is submitted, making July 9 the earliest date the Administration could send draft USMCA implementing legislation to Congress.
