HEARING: Reichert Announces Trade Subcommittee Hearing on the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill

April 07, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee Chairman Dave Reichert (R-WA) today announced that the Subcommittee will hold a hearing entitled, “Miscellaneous Tariff Bill: Helping U.S. Manufacturers through Tax Cuts” on Thursday, April 14th at 2:00 PM in room 1100 of the Longworth House Office Building. The hearing will focus on legislation to help American manufacturers lower costs and compete in the global market.

Upon announcing the hearing, Chairman Reichert said:

“American businesses are hurting because there is no longer a process in place to help them cut costs and compete with companies around the world. It’s time to develop a fair, transparent, and bipartisan process for considering manufacturing tax cuts that will help our businesses, benefit our consumers, and grow our economy. Next week’s hearing is an opportunity to do just that as we examine a new Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) process that upholds the strong House earmark ban. I am eager to discuss how this new approach will strengthen American manufacturing by lowering costs, creating more jobs at home, and saving money for American consumers.”
