Labeling. The Reinforcing American-Made Products Act (H.R. 5474, introduced by Reps. Trahan, D-Mass., and Curtis, R-Utah) would establish a single federal “Made in America” labeling standard. Trahan said the current state-by-state standards “place an undue burden on American manufacturers and companies by requiring them to comply with more than one standard, resulting in burdensome compliance costs.”
Marking. The Anti-BDS Labeling Act (H.R. 5356, introduced Sept. 23 by Rep. Tenney, R-N.Y.) would require the maintenance of existing policy that requires Israeli goods produced in the West Bank or Gaza to be labeled as “Made in Israel.”
Exports. The Promoting Rural Exports Act (H.S. 5359, introduced Sept. 24 by Reps. Armstrong, R-N.D., and Pappas, D-N.H.) would establish the Rural Export Center under the U.S. Commercial Service. The center would provide customized market research services to help rural businesses target their exports, conduct strategic planning and export support services, and make data relating to its effectiveness publicly available on its website.
E-commerce. H.R. 5374 (introduced Sept. 26 by Rep. Nadler, D-N.Y.) would amend the Trademark Act of 1946 to provide for contributory liability for certain electronic commerce platforms for use of a counterfeit mark by a third party on such platforms.
