House Vote on GSP Renewal Expected TODAY

This morning, House Republican leaders announced that they expect the House to vote on GSP later today (and tomorrow on the other trade bills). Debate will start at 12:00PM, and votes are expected later in the afternoon.

We need everyone to make one last round of calls to your Representative to “urge support for HR 1295, which would renew the Generalized System of Preferences program.”

Telephone numbers for all offices are available here.

This is not the last step for GSP importers: House leaders made some funding changes in the preferences bill, so it will need to go back to the Senate for another vote. But that’s a concern for after it passes the House.
