H.R. 3016 would expand the prohibition on boycotts of U.S. allies in the Anti-Boycott Act of 2018. Under that law, U.S. persons are barred from participating in boycotts of U.S. allies if those boycotts are promoted or imposed by foreign countries. Under the bill, that prohibition would be expanded to apply to boycotts of allies that are promoted or imposed by international governmental organizations (IGOs). The bill also would require the Administration to report to the Congress annually on boycotts of U.S. allies by foreign countries and IGOs.
