The Senate on Thursday morning (Feb. 11) successfully invoked cloture on the conference report on the customs bill (H.R. 644) by a vote of 73-22, clearing a procedural hurdle allowing the Senate to vote on whether to approve the legislation. That final vote is expected to take place around noon, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

Reactions to the duty evasion provisions contained in the final customs bill have been largely positive from private-sector advocates for more stringent enforcement of trade remedy orders, even though they acknowledge they would favor even stronger provisions, such as shorter deadlines and a more robust judicial review of decisions by Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
