Ember countries of the World Trade Organization (WTO) have actively used the WTO dispute settlement system during the first five years and filed 187 complaints as of April 2000. The United States and the European Union were the most active participants, both as plaintiffs and defendants. Out of 25 cases in which the United States was a plaintiff, the United States prevailed in a final WTO dispute settlement ruling in 13 cases, resolved the dispute without a ruling in 10 cases, and did not prevail in two cases. As a defendant in 17 cases, the United States prevailed in one case, resolved the dispute without a ruling in 10 cases, and lost in six cases. Overall, GAO's analysis shows that the United States has gained more than it has lost in the WTO dispute resolution system so far. WTO cases have resulted in a large number of changes in foreign trade practices, while their effect on U.S. laws and regulations has been minimal. This testimony summarizes the June 2000 report, GAO/NSIAD/OGC-00-196BR, June 14 (36 pages)

Homeland security : new department could improve coordination but transferring control of certain public health programs raises concerns by Janet Heinrich( Book )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
This document discusses the proposed creation of the Department of Homeland Security. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent anthrax incidents, there has been concern about the ability of the federal government to prepare for and coordinate an effective public health response to such events, given the broad distribution of responsibility for that task at the federal level. Our earlier work found, for example, that more than 20 federal departments and agencies carry some responsibility for bioterrorism preparedness and response and that these efforts are fragmented. Emergency response is further complicated by the need to coordinate actions with agencies at the state and local level, where much of the response activity would occur. The President's proposed Homeland Security Act of 2002 would bring many of these federal entities with homeland security responsibilities- including public health preparedness and response-into one department, in an effort to mobilize and focus assets and resources at all levels of government. The aspects of the proposal concerned with public health preparedness and response would involve two primary changes to the current system, which are found in Title V of the proposed legislation. First, the proposal would transfer certain emergency preparedness and response programs from multiple agencies to the new department. Second, it would transfer the control over, but not the operation of, other public health preparedness assistance programs, such as providing emergency preparedness planning assistance to state and local governments, from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to the new department. Title III of the proposed legislation would also transfer responsibility for certain chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear research and development programs and activities to the new department
