Like its counterpart in the Senate (S. 995 of 4/16/15), this bill would renew the president’s power to expedite approval of trade agreements in Congress, and establish new procedures and oversight mechanisms for such agreements. A provision targeting the BDS movement was added during committee markup (4/23) (identical to the one appended to S. 995 above), reaffirming the anti-BDS trade objectives outlined in the U.S.-Israel Trade Enhancement Act of 2015 (S. 619 of 3/2/15).
