You Can Help Today for a Cleaner Tomorrow
Ending plastic waste should be a priority for our lawmakers. Once hard to recycle, plastics can now be recycled an infinite number of times thanks to new technologies. That’s good for the environment and for our country. Now is the time to embrace environmentally-friendly advanced recycling technology that keeps plastic out of our rivers, parks and landfills. Take Action Today. Let your elected officials know you support new recycling technology and urge them to pass legislation that expands advanced recycling opportunities.
Take Action to Help Support U.S. Jobs and Competitiveness!
It is critical for Congress to work quickly to pass the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB). The Miscellaneous Tariff Bill Act of 2018 suspended tariffs on imports of products and materials essential to U.S. manufacturing processes. According to the USITC, tariff relief under the MTB Act of 2018 boosted U.S. GDP annually by as much as $3.3 billion and output by as much as $6.3 billion. But the previous MTB – and its benefits – expired at the end of 2020. President Biden has said that he wants to make American manufacturing “part of the engine of American prosperity now” and we fully support the President in that effort. MTB is one of the most efficient and effective legislative tools at the Administration’s disposal to ease burdensome tariffs on critical inputs to U.S. manufacturing processes and jumpstart economic recovery and jobs. Please contact Congress today and urge them to pass MTB so U.S. businesses can maintain their competitive advantage, create new American jobs, reinvest in new innovation, and help America “Build Back Better.”
