ARLINGTON, Va. – Americans for Prosperity announced support for Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Rep. Ron Kind’s (D-Wisc.) bipartisan Trade Security Act introduced in both chambers of Congress Wednesday. This legislation is a welcome move to update the procedure for levying Section 232 tariffs for national security reasons and to allow more tariff actions to undergo the scrutiny of a Congressional disapproval vote.
Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips had this to say:
“With each new tariff, American workers, businesses and consumers face what is essentially higher taxes that undermine economic expansion and job growth. The bipartisan Trade Security Act will allow Congress to provide a check on new tariffs. We support the efforts of Sen. Portman, Rep. Kind and other lawmakers from both parties pursuing legislation to provide congressional review and approval of tariff increases. Our ultimate goal should be the elimination of all protectionist policies. This legislation is a step in the right direction.”
