H.R. 4041, Export Promotion Reform Act

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on March 7, 2012

H.R. 4041 would require the Secretary of Commerce to assess overseas markets, at least once every five years, to determine which markets present the greatest opportunities to increase United States exports. The Secretary would be required to relocate personnel that promote U.S. trade opportunities based on the outcome of the assessment. The bill also would require Chiefs of Missions in foreign countries to use those assessments in promoting United States exports.
