Federal Spotlight: U.S. Chamber Ramps Up Opposition to Tariffs

July 5, 2018

As President Trump continues to put tariffs on many of our allies and top trading partners, and the threat of retaliation is coming to fruition, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is beefing up its objection to those levies. It is providing resources and educating the public on the cost of what those taxes mean for states, businesses and consumers alike.

It has launched The Wrong Approach, which provides state-level facts sheets that detail the total value of exports subject to tariffs, as well as the largest export items by destination. There is also information that allows you to contact your member of Congress to let them know you oppose the tariffs the Trump administration has been issuing.
