Just before the 4th, U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney (FL 19th) and 10 bipartisan Members of Congress formally petitioned the Department of Labor to remove travel agencies from an arbitrary regulatory "blacklist" locks them from utilizing an exemption from federal labor rules designed for retail businesses. Those of you who were at ASTA Legislative Day in May will remember that signing onto this letter was among our "asks" of Congress. This is certainly great news, and we want to recognize the following ASTA members for successfully lobbying their legislator to sign onto the letter: Deb Mangas (Rep. Jim Banks), Leslie Bramlett, Deborah Bjerke, Laura Rodriguez and Hope Wallace (Rep. Andy Biggs), Darcy Lard (Rep. Greg Gianforte), Lee Thomas (Rep. Trey Hollingsworth), Chris Seddelmeyer (Rep. Jim Jordan) and Andréa da Rosa and Denise Jackson (Rep. Scott Peters).
