Federal Spotlight: ABI Signs Letter in Support of Miscellaneous Tariff Act of 2017
December 7, 2017
ABI recently added our name to a letter in support of the Miscellaneous Tariff Act of 2017. Congress has not passed a Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) since 2012, and a host of businesses and business organizations are pushing Congress to pass this legislation in an expedient manner.
An MTB “eliminates border tariffs on imported products for which there is no or insufficient domestic production and availability.” This legislation would allow manufacturers to increase their output by over $3.1 billion and eliminate $1.1 billion in import tariffs over the next three years according to the National Association of Manufacturers.
