Sinema Discusses Impact of Tariffs on Arizona Families and Businesses with Manufacturing Leaders

Apr 12, 2019

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema met with the National Tooling and Machining Association and the Precision Metalforming Association and discussed the impact of steel and aluminum tariffs on manufacturers in Arizona and the United States.

“Tariffs hurt Arizona businesses, kill jobs, and raise prices on Arizona families. I am working across the aisle to stop these harmful taxes, and I’ll keep fighting to protect Arizonans from the unnecessary trade war,” said Sinema, a member of the Senate Commerce Committee.

Earlier this year, Sinema teamed up with Republican Senator Rob Portman (Ohio) and a group of bipartisan Senators to introduce the Trade Security Act—legislation that helps prevent unnecessary trade wars that hurt Arizona jobs.

While serving in the U.S. House, Sinema also championed bipartisan legislation that requires Congressional approval on certain proposed tariffs and allows members of Congress to review future tariff proposals and reject them if necessary.
