Federal Spotlight: ABI Signs onto Tariff Letter to Congress

June 21, 2018

ABI has signed onto a letter in support of Sen. Bob Corker’s (R-TN) amendment that would require the president to submit to Congress any proposal to raise tariffs in the interest of national security. The bipartisan amendment was filed to the National Defense Authorization Act. Many in the business community and in Congress are very uneasy with the Trump administration’s efforts of unloading tariffs on our allies and top trading partners including Mexico, Canada, the European Union and China. Our friends at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have been leading this effort. You can read the letter here.
