The legislation would make sweeping changes in U.S. trade policy, including renegotiation of free trade agreements (FTAs) to ensure national security, product safety, human rights and environmental protection. The proposed act also has provisions on currency manipulation, sweat shops and Buy American requirements. Versions of the TRADE Act include Senate bill S.3083 and House bill H.R.6180.
