Congress recessing without putting an end to tariffs that are hurting Wisconsin jobs and farms

La Crosse – Today, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind called for Congress to stay in session in August and work together on long-term solutions that help protect the livelihood of Wisconsin’s farmers, workers and families. President Trump’s Trade War is negatively impacting households across Wisconsin and the country, and is hurting the rural economy.

“Wisconsin’s farmers and manufacturers work hard every day to keep the rural economy afloat, and Washington should do the same. Congress needs to take charge and put an end to the trade war, which is why I’m calling on Congressional Leadership to stay in session this August and work to open new markets and keep our farms and businesses open,” saidRep. Ron Kind.

Rep. Ron Kind has recently introduced bipartisan bills that would take back Congress’s power in the application of tariffs, and require the President to seek approval from Congress before imposing tariffs on the basis of national security.
