Supply Chains. The Allies Strengthening Economies and Manufacturing Act (H.R. 6157, introduced Dec. 7 by Rep. Kinzinger, R-Ill.) would require the State Department to support the relocation of critical manufacturing from countries of concern (e.g., China) to the U.S. or elsewhere in the Western Hemisphere.
GSP. The CNL Update Act (H.R. 6171, introduced Dec. 7 by Reps. Walorski, R-Ind. and Murphy, D-Fla.) would update the competitive need limitation rules under the Generalized System of Preferences and provide additional guidance for the executive branch as it conducts country and product-specific reviews of GSP benefits.
Customs. S. 3329 (introduced Dec. 7 by Sens. Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sinema, D-Ariz.) would reauthorize for five years U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Donations Acceptance Program, which allows CBP to accept donations of property and technology to more efficiently process trade and secure U.S. borders. Cornyn said allowing the DAP to expire would “translate to serious negative consequences for … the ongoing globally supply chain crisis.”
