U.S. Businesses Mount Pressure on Congress to Pass MTB

Manufacturers and business organizations are mobilizing to urge Congress to pass Miscellaneous Tariff Bill.

The Miscellaneous Tariff Bill temporarily removes or reduces anti-competitive tariffs on goods that are not made domestically or are not available in sufficient quantities in the United States. The last MTB expired after Dec. 2020 and since then, manufacturers and other businesses in the United States have been at a disadvantage compared to foreign competitors. Amidst a global pandemic, severe supply chain shortages and other hurdles, the lack of action on the MTB is yet another challenge.

The National Association of Manufacturers has taken the lead in drafting a letter to Congress urging action on the MTB. You can Join them in telling Congress that it has the opportunity to support manufacturers, businesses, workers and consumers in the United States by passing bipartisan MTB legislation by the end of the year.

This letter is open to companies, business and industry associations, state and local chambers and allied organizations. Non-NAM member companies, associations and other organizations are welcome to join, as well. The deadline to sign onto this letter is Wednesday, November 24 at 10:00 p.m. EST. You will receive a copy of the final letter when it is distributed to Congress.
