Brady Statement on Section 301 Trade Actions

March 22, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement on President Trump’s proposed Section 301 import tariffs to combat Chinese trade misconduct:

“President Trump is right to take a hardline against China’s dishonest trade practices, which have clearly harmed American workers. The challenge for every president, however, is how to punish China without harming our families, businesses, and farmers. Tariffs are taxes, so the next 30 days of input are crucial to make sure we don’t punish American workers and families for China’s misbehavior.”
