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.
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.
