8 Senators Oppose Cloture Vote for GSP

The Senate passed the cloture motion this evening by a vote of 84-8.  All eight “no” votes came from Republicans, including:

Alabama: Senator Jeff Sessions (R); Senator Richard Shelby (R)
Arizona: Senator Jon Kyl (R); Senator John McCain (R)
Louisiana: Senator David Vitter (R)
Oklahoma: Senator Tom Coburn (R)
South Carolina: Senator Jim DeMint (R)
Utah: Senator Mike Lee (R)

If you have operations in any of the above states, make sure to contact those offices and let them know how opposing GSP hurts their constituents and ask why they will not support legislation helping businesses in their state.

You can do so by using our Email Your Senators page to contact trade staff directly (UPDATED 9/20: You can now click on the names above to email directly).

  1. What do I do if GSP non renewal affects me and none of the “no” votes came from my state? We have put out $800,000 in Customs expense unexpectedly
