This is from the TPA bill introduced in Congress today:
SEC. 8. SOVEREIGNTY.
(a) UNITED STATES LAW TO PREVAIL IN EVENT OF CONFLICT.—No provision of any trade agreement entered into under section 3(b), nor the application of any such provision to any person or circumstance, that is inconsistent with any law of the United States, any State of
the United States, or any locality of the United States shall have effect.
I'm a little puzzled by this provision. Is this an assertion that no provision will be included in a trade agreement if such provision conflicts with U.S. law? Or does it mean that if there is a provision in a trade agreement that conflicts with U.S. law, that provision has no effect? Or something else entirely?
