NMMA urges passage of tariff bill

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is calling on members to support the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill, an item the previous Congress didn’t act upon. Existing duty suspensions expired Dec. 31.

NMMA legislative counsel Jeff Gabriel sent a letter to members saying the bill supports and grows recreational marine manufacturing jobs in the United States by cutting costs and improving competitiveness.

“Recreational marine manufacturers of all sizes use the vital tariff suspensions contained in the [bill] to obtain raw materials, inputs and other products that are not available domestically,” Gabriel wrote in the letter. “Without the now-expired [bill], manufacturing production costs are higher, damaging our nation's manufacturing competitiveness and threatening jobs for American workers.”
