ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. 21 – AAHOA President and CEO Cecil Staton issued the following statement on the full Energy and Commerce Committee’s passage of Brand USA reauthorization:

“The bipartisan passage of Brand USA reauthorization through the House Energy and Commerce Committee is a testament to the tremendous impact this program has on our nation’s entire travel and tourism industry. International tourism is a key economic contributor to communities, both big and small, throughout the nation. With yesterday’s vote, we are one step closer to ensuring that Brand USA continues to promote America’s great destinations abroad. America’s hoteliers thank Reps. Pallone, Walden, Schakowsky, McMorris Rodgers, Welch, and Bilirakis for their leadership in carrying this bill through markup to passage. We urge leaders in both the House and the Senate to send this reauthorization to President Trump’s desk before year’s end to guarantee that this vital public-private partnership endures well into the future.”
