President Limited !5y New System Before the United States can begin any new negotiations under the modified trade agreements act. the President must send to the Tariff Commission a list of all the commodities imported from each country with which revision of t:s.-iiT rates is to L-e considered. The Tariff Commission then has IL'-J days in which to study these commodities and dotermiue whether revision of tarisT rates would injure any domestic industry. The Preside:;: is not restricted under the new Saw to making the agreement within such limits as ! the TariiT Commission may set.' But ; if the President goes outside those i limits, he must within 30 days re- i port his reasons to ConRre.-c.
