Are Executive Agreements Binding On Future Presidents

With the fall of France in June 1940, President Roosevelt concluded two executive agreements whose overall effect was to transform the role of the United States from strict neutrality vis-à-vis the European war to a role of half-war. Executive agreements are considered politically binding in order to distinguish them from legally binding treaties. The challenge of obtaining a two-thirds majority on treaties was one of the driving forces behind the enormous proliferation of executive agreements after World War II. Thus, in 1952, the United States signed 14 treaties and 291 executive agreements. These were more executive agreements than those concluded throughout the century, from 1789 to 1889. Executive agreements continue to grow rapidly. When the Constitution was originally conceived, the founders felt it was appropriate to give the president the power to enter into contracts with other nations. However, the power of the president was limited; Under Article 2, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution, the President was only able to enter into a contract by and with the Council and the approval of the Senate.

In addition, a two-thirds agreement that was never simple from the Senate was required. Without the agreement, the president did not have the power to enter into a treaty with another sovereign nation. The contracting process is the same today. Nevertheless, it seems that there is another way to achieve similar results: an executive agreement.
