Brand USA Reauthorization Legislation Passes House
The House of Representatives voted late on July 22 to pass H.R. 4450, the Travel Promotion, Enhancement, and Modernization Act. The legislation authored by Congressional Travel and Tourism Caucus co-chair Gus Bilirakis, R-Fla., and co-sponsored by co-chair Rep. Sam Farr, D-Calif., and caucus member Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., reauthorizes Brand USA – a public-private partnership designed to encourage tourism to the United States. Travel and tourism is the United State’s top export industry and Brand USA’s efforts have already brought an additional 1.1 million visitors to the United States. The bipartisan legislation passed 347-57. Next up: BUSA reauthorization legislation in the Senate.
