Reichert Speaks Out on Additional Tariffs

Jul 11, 2018 Issues: Trade

Washington, DC - House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee Chairman Dave Reichert (R-WA) issued the following statement regarding yesterday's announcement of Section 301 action by the Trump Administration toward China. 

“American farmers, workers, and consumers are already hurting because of the placement of tariffs on certain imports from China. I strongly disagree with the Administration’s plan to place tariffs on additional goods, resulting in higher prices here at home for American families and less sales abroad for American workers and farmers as markets are closed to American-made goods through retaliation. I am committed to working with the Administration to address China’s theft of American technology and intellectual property in a way that targets the problem and does not further harm communities across America."
