Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Tuesday (January 16) upon unanimous passage of H.R. 4318, the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill Act:

“Manufacturing was the key to the American dream during the 20th Century,” Westerman said. “To restore American manufacturing and again make the American dream achievable in the 21st Century, we must create a climate that promotes job creation and gives businesses the tools necessary to be competitive in the global economy. Passage of the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill Act allows manufacturers to obtain materials unavailable in the United States without having to pay tariffs. This gives manufacturers access to the world commodities market while creating jobs here at home. This bill is truly a win/win for the Fourth Congressional District of Arkansas and its workers.”
