Ban on Mexican trucks leads to Mexican tariffs

by

When I started looking at tariffs, I assumed I would be following measures to lower tariffs. Lately, all of the news has been running in the other direction.

Looking at OpenCongress.org, I found no tariff suspension bills. H.R. 1480, sponsored by Rep. Steve Kagen, would “require that certain laminated woven bags be marked with the country of origin,” while this Senate resolution would express the sense that “United States and the People’s Republic of China should work together to reduce or eliminate tariff and nontariff barriers to trade in clean energy and environmental goods and services.”

Still no action on the hundreds of tariff bills that died in the 110th Congress.
