What does TPA mean?
Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) or fast track authority, is the authority Congress grants to the President of the United States to negotiate trade agreements without interference. Members can still vote approve or disapprove on a trade deal. But they can’t change any elements or filibuster to delay it. For this reason, it’s also known as fast-track authority.
