Here for America Supports Bipartisan Senators’ Oversight of Tariff Process

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 2, 2018  –  Statement from John Bozzella, President and CEO of Global Automakers and spokesperson for Here For America:

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.  The bill includes two commonsense reforms: First, it requires the Department of Defense to affirmatively determine that the importation of a certain product threatens to impair the national security of the United States before the Department of Commerce can recommend ways to address the threat.  Second, the bill provides for Congressional oversight to ensure the appropriate checks and balances are in place to protect the U.S. economy and American jobs.  Providing a role for Congress to ensure that Section 232 is used as intended is a big step in the right direction.”
