FASA/Gemini Calls on Congress to Approve Customs Bill

By | Washington Newsline | No Comments

On January 15, FASA/Gemini joined more than a dozen organizations in calling on the Senate to immediately approve long-pending Customs legislation. The call came days after President Barack Obama made a similar call in his final State of the Union Address. FASA/Gemini strongly supports the legislation, which includes key provisions important to the industry, including important trade facilitation measures such as raising the de minimis threshold, a critical fix to a Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS classification) issue with recreational performance outerwear, and new trade preferences for Nepal.
