GSP Renewal Legislation Passes Senate

Final Vote: 97-1
A little earlier this afternoon, the Senate voted 97-1 in favor of legislation (H.R. 1295, as amended with S. 1267) that would renew GSP through December 31, 2017 and refund most tariffs paid since GSP expired in July 2013. It would also extend certain preferences for imports from Africa and Haiti.

A big THANK YOU to everyone that made calls, sent emails, tweeted, etc. over the past 24 hours or so!!!!

GSP still needs to pass the House…and then it will take 30 days from enactment until Customs stops collecting tariffs on GSP-eligible products…and then another 90 days before refunds are guaranteed. So we’re not out of the woods yet.
