According to the Detroit News, U.S. Representative, Fred Upton (R) introduced legislation that would stop President Trump from imposing 25% tariffs on cars imported to the US under the premise of threats to America’s national security.
The legislation includes bi-partisan support and would require the International Trade Commission to first conduct a “comprehensive study on the economic importance of automotive manufacturing in America”.
Another argument is that the Trump administration is over stating the claim that cars and auto parts are a threat to national security of the US.
Since Trump proposed the tariffs in May of 2018, the proposed tariffs may be imposed as early as early May if the new legislation passes and becomes law.
More news will be posted as they become available.
