WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House is likely to formally notify Congress on Thursday that President Barack Obama intends to sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a senior administration official said.
The notification starts a 90-day clock before his signature triggers the next step in a process of seeking final congressional approval for the deal. Text of the landmark U.S.-backed Pacific trade deal was released earlier on Thursday.
