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

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

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.
