The National Marine Manufacturers Association, along with 11 other industry trade organizations, signed a letter to the U.S. Senate on behalf of the Brazil Trade Action Coalition opposing the Brazil WTO cotton amendment offered by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

“The bill could result in nearly $1 billion in Brazilian trade sanctions against U.S. goods, costing tens of thousands of American jobs and establishing a dangerous precedent for future actions in the World Trade Organization,” according to the NMMA.
