Here for America Supports Congressional Oversight on Tariffs and Other Trade Restrictions Under Section 232
WASHINGTON, D.C., January 30, 2019 – “Congress has a critical role in overseeing any tariffs or other trade restrictions imposed under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962. Here For America applauds Senators Toomey and Warner and Representatives Kind, Gallagher, Panetta, and LaHood for introducing legislation that reasserts Congress’ role in determining whether trade actions related to national security are justified.
“Tariffs are taxes that harm consumers, reduce investment, and threaten American jobs. No single automaker asked for tariff protection. Here For America supports these efforts by Congress to rebalance the authority available under this statute and urges that hearings be held on this important issue at the earliest opportunity.”
Here For America tells the story of international automakers and dealers, 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, directly employing 1.29 million Americans in the auto industry and an additional 7 million indirect workers. 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.
