PLEASE REVIEW — Draft TGA Priorities Letter to Congressional Conferees on Competitiveness Legislation

TGA has drafted a letter to Congressional conferees working to reconcile the House and Senate versions of competitiveness/anti-China legislation. The draft letter urges the conferees to ensure any final legislation includes key U.S. travel goods industry priorities, including renewal of the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program, the Ocean Shipping Reform Act, and restart of the China Section 301 tariff exclusion process. Congressional leaders hope to reach agreement on a final competitiveness bill by July 4th, although that timeline could slip. Please provide any feedback/edits on the draft letter by Friday, June 3.
