WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement after House passage of H.R. 4318, the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill Act:

“It is great to finally get this done. American manufacturers can compete with anyone, but it’s much tougher when they face costly, needless taxes on key materials that can’t be found in the United States. So in 2016, we created a transparent process to review these kinds of tariffs, which allows us to deliver this relief. This means a more level playing field, and it keeps costs down, which is good news for workers and consumers. I commend Chairman Brady and the members of the Ways and Means Committee for their leadership in making this happen.”
