Slowly but surely Congressional support for ASTA's policy priorities continues to grow. And, more often than not a Member of Congress' decision to show support comes after meeting with or hearing from their constituents - so ASTA members play a key role in this process. Here are a few highlights from the last few weeks.
After meeting with ASTA members, Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA-7th - attended event at Virtuoso's Seattle headquarters), Peter King (NY-2nd - met with Toni Lanotte-Day) and Trey Hollingsworth (IN-9th - met with members during Legislative Day) cosponsored the FASTER Act, which would stop the diversion of aviation security fees into the general budget. Reps. Ted Deutch (FL-22nd - heard from Eric Altschul) and Matt Gaetz (FL-1st - met with ASTA staff) cosponsored the Travel Advisor Retail Fairness Act to remove travel agencies from an arbitrary federal labor "blacklist." And Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) cosponsored the Freedom of Americans to Travel to Cuba Act after hearing from Leila Dada and Kat Perkins, presidents of the ASTA Arizona and Arizona Small Business Network chapters.
