The Case Zablocki Act of 1972 requires the president to inform the Senate of any executive agreement within 60 days. The powers of the President to enter into such agreements have not been granted. The notification requirement allowed Congress to vote in favor of cancelling an executive agreement or to refuse to fund its implementation. [3] [4] The first restriction concerns the causal interpretation of the results. The choice between treaties and agreements between Congress and the executive is not fortuitous, and there is no guarantee that the estimates from the analysis can be interpreted as cause-and-effect estimates, i.e., agreements concluded in the form of contracts take a long time because they were adopted as treaties and not as agreements between Congress and the executive. Footnote 103 A second restriction of the data is that it is not able to identify individual agreements on the sole manager. This is important because the question of whether the executive agreement should completely replace the treaty is raised only with respect to agreements between Congress and the executive; It is generally accepted that executive agreements are very different political instruments, which fall within the power of the President and do not require legislative participation. Fn. 81 The inability to identify individually the executive agreements alone is that neither the ITFs nor the executive agreements themselves indicate their authoritarian legislation.

Therefore, identifying unique executive agreements would require a search for legislative approval for each executive agreement in the Statute at Large, a process that requires unenforceable manpower and cannot be easily automated. However, previous studies have shown that the share of single executive agreements, estimated at between 5 and 6% in all international agreements, is minimal. Footnote 83 The analysis described below addresses this restriction using a conservative estimation method. Footnote 84 66 Martin, note 15 above, at 448 (“Sometimes U.S. allies request that long-standing executive agreements be transformed into formal contracts, explicitly stating that such changes would signal to the United States. long-term commitment”.; Yoo, note 16 above, with 41 (“[I]n his reading of the Constitution removes from the nation`s toolbox an instrument that . to reach the most sustainable international agreements”.; Hathaway, note 1 above, at 1316 (“[I]n the bar in Congress is generally higher for Article II treaties – which one might think of to create a stronger guarantee of political sustainability.”).
