Tell Your Representative to Cosponsor the JOLT Act
The "Jobs Originated Through Launching Travel (JOLT) Act" (H.R. 1354) would reform the Visa Waiver Program to allow more countries to qualify, expand the Global Entry Program to expedite the clearance process for low-risk international travelers and develop a pilot program for premium processing of visas in exchange for a higher fee while setting specific goals for visa processing. Email your Representative and urge him/her to cosponsor the JOLT Act.
Tell Your Legislators That Travel Matters
As the 113th Congress gets underway, it is crucial that your legislators hear from you about the importance of the travel industry in their district. Whether your Member of Congress is a freshman or a seasoned veteran, take this opportunity to present the economic impact of travel in your community and offer to serve as a resource to their office. This is also the perfect opportunity to ask your Members to join the Travel and Tourism Caucus.
