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 Keep American Manufacturers Competitive!
The Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) Act of 2018 passed the House by a 402-0 vote, passed the Senate by unanimous consent and was signed by President Trump in September 2018. The MTB plays an important role in the operations of U.S. manufacturers by suspending tariffs on imports of essential inputs to U.S. manufacturing processes. These products and materials are either currently unavailable or cannot be produced domestically. Without the MTB, the cost of the tariffs would pile up quickly and undermine the competitiveness of manufacturers in the United States. It is critical for the House and Senate to work quickly to pass the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill. Please contact Congress today and urge them to support U.S. competitiveness and jobs by passing the MTB.
