Here For America applauds the introduction of legislation by Senators Portman, Jones and Ernst to fix the misuse of Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.
Statement from John Bozzella, President and CEO of Global Automakers and spokesperson for Here For America on the joint U.S. – E.U. Rose Garden
announcement: “We are encouraged by today’s U.S.-E.U. agreement to resolve outstanding trade issues. Talks are the right way to go. The answer is more trade, not less.”
Today, international auto employees from across the country led a ‘Drive-In’ in Washington, D.C., to voice concerns over the proposed Section 232 tariffs on auto and auto parts imports. More than one hundred international auto employees pulled up to the U.S. Capitol in a caravan of American made vehicles and were joined by Members of Congress from high auto-production states: Congressman Drew Ferguson (R-GA), Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) and Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (R-IN).
Here for America tells the story of international automakers, their ever-growing impact on the U.S. economy, and the benefits they provide to local communities. The contributions of international automakers and dealers are integral to the success of today's U.S. auto industry, the most vibrant and competitive auto market in the world.
Here for America is an initiative of the Association of Global Automakers to increase public education about the importance of international automakers to American job creation, economic growth, technological innovation and strong communities.
