AFFTA: USTR Accepting Comments on Section 301 China Investigation
Fly-fishing industry should use this opportunity to weigh in.
The American Fly Fishing Trade Association shared information on how to comment on the US Trade Representative’s China Section 301-Tariff actions.
Today, November 15, 2022, in keeping with the U.S. Office of the Trade Representative's (USTR) ongoing review of Section 301 Tariffs, a new public comment window is now open (here); the intention of this request for public comment is to learn from domestic, affected industries about the on-the-ground impacts of 301 tariffs and use that information to determine whether to: (1) extend/amend tariffs, (2) eliminate tariffs, or (3) issue/(re)issue exclusions from tariffs. No matter which approach USTR takes, the agency's action is separate from ongoing Congressional considerations that could supersede any administrative decision(s).
Here is a link to the full AFFTA notice and more details.
I sat on AFFTA’s board for several years and was delighted to see information like this shared with the industry. Now I hope those in the industry impacted by the tariffs will take advantage of this opportunity to comment.
