This document shows the changes in pre-existing laws under the jurisdiction of the Committee on Finance that were made by the bill H.R. 4848 (P.L. 100-418), the "Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988.” It was prepared by the Staff of the Committee on Finance in order to assist the Committee in its oversight of the trade laws during the 101st Congress. The purpose of the document is to provide a clear comparison between the trade laws as they existed immediately prior to the enactment of H.R. 4848 and the trade laws as they exist today.

Changes in existing laws made by H.R. 4848 (P.L. 100-418), as passed, are shown as follows: existing law that was omitted is enclosed in black brackets; new matter is printed in italic; existing law in which no change was made is shown in roman.
