If PLR in fact influences labor practices, as many authors have claimed, then this creates opportunities for TDLR that have been underexplored in legal literature.
However, there is another question that needs to be addressed first: whether a regulatory TDLR project that seeks to harness the power of PLR, with the aim of improving foreign labor practices, is good policy.
Part II examines anticipated arguments against TDLR. Part III considers responses to these arguments and outlines arguments in support of TDLR.
TDLR is also a politically viable idea because it may be attractive to politicians from across the political spectrum.
Politicians on the more progressive side of the political spectrum may also find TDLR attractive, particularly if it includes provisions aimed at empowering labor and human rights activists in their engagements with MNCs and employers.
Therefore, while the prospects should not be overstated, the political conditions may be sufficiently favorable in some countries to warrant the more thorough and critical exploration of the TDLR. Of course, the fact that there may be pressure on governments to address abusive labor practices in developing countries does not mean that those governments will, or should, respond in the form of regulation.

The Costs of TDLR Would Outweigh Any Potential Benefits
Therefore, the benefits of TDLR that targets foreign labor practices may prove extremely difficult to measure.
The preceding section described serious objections to PLR, which by inference challenge the TDLR project that would seek to harness PLR to improve labor conditions in foreign states.
Martenson and Holibaugh suspect that animal rights groups strategically wrote the bill to ensure that the TDLR would oversee the regulations, knowing that Lindquist would be there to keep the rules so strict that breeders like them would be forced out of business.
Susan Stanford, a spokeswoman for TDLR, said leaders there are aware of Lindquist's involvement in animal rights causes.
