Trade Reorganization: Overview and Issues for Congress
On January 13, 2012, President Obama asked Congress for authority to reorganize and consolidate into one department the business- and trade-related functions of six federal entities.

Interest also has been stimulated by national debates on reducing federal spending and the size of the U.S. government.
