MEMA - We Must Oppose Section 232 Tariffs

MEMA President and CEO Bill Long discusses MEMA's concerns surrounding the threat of Section 232 tariffs on autos and motor vehicle parts, which could put jobs at risk and raise costs for consumers. Over the past few months, MEMA has held meetings with a range of legislators on Capitol Hill, explaining the critical role that motor vehicle parts suppliers play in the U.S. economy. While MEMA supports the goal to protect the country’s well-being, placing tariffs on our trading partners could put suppliers, the largest sector of manufacturing jobs, at a competitive disadvantage.
