NMMA responds positively to state of the union address

Publish date:

During last evening’s state of the union address, President Trump said he was committed to bipartisanship, infrastructure and ratifying the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, all of which was positively received by the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The president called on Congress to produce an infrastructure package that invests in national infrastructure projects. He also addressed key trade priorities including the United States’ trading priorities with China and the need to pass USMCA.

The NMMA said that “securing a comprehensive infrastructure package and trade deals with top markets — including the elimination of retaliatory tariffs — are top NMMA advocacy priorities in 2019.” It added that bipartisanship will be required to accomplish the objectives and NMMA looks forward to working with the administration and Congress.
