Senate Passes Miscellaneous Tariff Bill, Supports Manufacturing

By July 28, 2010Trade

Praising the House last week for passing  H.R. 4380, the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill, re-dubbed the United States Manufacturing Enhancement Act, the National Association of Manufacturers also expressed hope that the bipartisan margin of passage, 478-43, would encourage swift action by the Senate.

It did!

The Senate approved the bill on a unanimous consent motion Tuesday evening. It now goes to the President for his signature.

Tuesday was a big news day, so Senate action made only modest news. Rest assured, it’s big news for many, many manufacturers. (More commentary later at Shopfloor.)

Thank you to the Senate.
