Entry Title Date
Trade Preferences Extension Act Of 2015 June 24, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"Mr. President, today I rise to commend my colleagues on passage of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015. This legislation provides timely extension of the African Growth and Opportunity Act, or AGOA, Program, and preferential treatment for products from Haiti. And, this legislation finally reauthorizes the Generalized System of Preferences, or GSP, Program which has languished since July of 2013. I am very pleased we have been successful in this effort."
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"Once we vote to pass TPA, we will then be voting to invoke cloture on the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015. This bill will reauthorize and improve three of our trade preference programs: the Generalized System of Preferences, or GSP; the African Growth and Opportunity Act, or AGOA; and tariff preferences for Haiti. I want to take some time to reiterate why each of these programs is important. "
Irs Bureaucracy Reduction And Judicial Review Act June 17, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"The bill also retroactively renews and updates the General System of Preferences (GSP), which reduces trade barriers by allowing various products from developing countries to enter into the U.S. duty-free. This program expired in July 2013 and I am glad to see that it has finally been renewed."
Bangladesh Rana Plaza Anniversary April 23, 2015
Robert Menendez, D-NJ
"Until substantial progress is made, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has rightfully decided to keep in place the suspension of Bangladesh’s Generalized System of Preferences—GSP—trade benefits with the United States. I support this decision."
Honoring Ambassador Seng Soukhathivong And The Lao People’S Democratic Republic November 14, 2014
Eni Faleomavaega, D-AS
"Since this time, both countries have worked together on key issues, including carrying out humanitarian work for and on behalf of those missing in action (MIA). In 2008, the Lao PDR and USA established military-to-military cooperation. Laos would like to work more closely on UXO clearance, counter-narcotics, and the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP)."
