Yesterday, U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs (AZ-5th) and Scott Peters (CA-52nd) cosponsored the Travel agent Retail Fairness Act (H.R. 2515), federal legislation to remove travel agencies from a regulatory "blacklist" maintained by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). This did not happen by accident. It comes as a direct result of ASTA members pressing their case during our Legislative Day last month, and we want to recognize Leslie Bramlett, Deborah Bjerke, Laura Rodriguez and Hope Wallace (Rep. Biggs' constituents) and Andréa da Rosa and Denise Jackson (Rep. Peters) for their successful advocacy in this case. The bill sponsor is also circulating a sign-on letter to DOL this week, so we will have additional updates to share soon.
