Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015

April 21, 2015
May 14, 2015

Commonly known as a ‘customs bill,’ this measure would reauthorize trade enforcement and facilitation procedures. It was largely unrelated to Palestinian affairs or the wider Arab-Israeli conflict, except for a single provision to strengthen U.S.-Israeli trade and counter the growing BDS movement. The relevant provision was identical to the text of the U.S.-Israel Trade and Commercial Enhancement Act (see H.R. 825 of 2/10/15 for details).

2 cosponsors (2R).

See also: the Senate’s version of this bill, S. 1269 of 5/11/15, as well as S. 619 of 3/2/15, S. 995 of 4/16/15, and H.R. 1890 of 4/17/15.

Last major action: 5/14/15 discharged from Judiciary, Financial Services, Foreign Affairs, and Homeland Security Comms.
