The Issue

All too often, Congress is challenged to find a solution to something that is broken. However, this bill seeks to enhance transparency and expand programs that are already helping to improve the lives of millions of people.

The Solution

The African Growth & Opportunity Act (AGOA) and the Millennial Challenge Corporation (MCC) have proven track records in spurring economic development across the world. Strengthening these programs furthers the U.S. position of international leadership, strengthens our domestic job market and economy, while protecting our national security interests.
