H.R. 1295: Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015

Jun 11, 2015 at 1:55 p.m. ET. Concurring in Senate amendments with amendment in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1295 (114th) in the House.

It was not the final House vote on the bill. See the history of H.R. 1295 (114th) for further details.

The Trade Preferences Extension Act extends a trade agreement with sub-Saharan African partners and prevents trade partners from undercutting United States businesses with artificially low prices. The bill also includes Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), help for workers and companies affected by trade policies. TAA was added to the bill after the Democrats strategically voted against TAA in an earlier bill.
