On June 3, 2015, the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) joined a coalition letter urging the House to pass the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015. This legislation was approved by the Senate 97 to 1 in May. The legislation includes a 10-year extension of the African Growth & Opportunity Act (AGOA), retroactive renewal of the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), extension through 2025 of the Haiti trade preferences program, and HTS breakouts for certain performance outerwear and athletic footwear. The letter is available here.
