What is it?
This bill would authorize Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to establish preclearance (inspection) stations in foreign countries while setting the conditions under which DHS may do so. Much of the to-do around this bill extends from a preclearance center that opened in the Abu Dhabi International Airport in January 2014.
The bill impacts where CBP inspection stations may be set up.
The CBO estimates no significant impact on the federal budget.
