NRF Responds to Senate Action on Tariffs

Bipartisan concern grows over consequences of tariffs.

The National Retail Federation (NRF) issued the following statement from Senior Vice President for Government Relations David French after the Senate approved a “motion to instruct” related to congressional approval of national-security designated tariffs.

“There is clearly growing bipartisan concern over the administration’s reckless trade agenda as the real-world consequences of tariffs spread in communities across the country. Congress has an important role to play in protecting hardworking Americans from a trade war, and this vote is an important first step. We appreciate the leadership of Senators Corker, Toomey and Flake and hope to see this commonsense legislation continue to move forward.”
