SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: The Travel Promotion Act of 2009 (TPA) was signed into 
law by President Obama on March 4, 2010. The TPA established the 
Corporation for Travel Promotion (the Corporation), as a non-profit

ensure that international travel benefits all States and the District 
of Columbia, and (E) identify opportunities to promote tourism to rural 
and urban areas equally, including areas not traditionally visited by 
international travelers.
    The Corporation is governed by a board of directors, consisting of
