Broker Bankruptcy Bill Gains Cosponsors
NCBFAA members did a great job on Capitol Hill during the GAC in lobbying for the Customs Business Fairness Act (H.R. 2261). Already, the bill has attracted 4 new cosponsors as a direct result of those efforts! The new cosponsors include:
Rep. Darrel Soto (D-FL)
Rep. John Rutherford (R-FL)
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY)
For GAC attendees, if your member has not signed on as a cosponsor, be sure to follow-up. Here is an article from American Shipper that explains the issue. You may want to share the article with the staffer with whom you met to help them better understand the need for this legislation. Thanks again to all!
