AAPC Statement on Section 232
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Governor Matt Blunt, president of the American Automotive Policy Council, today issued the following statement on the Section 232 report:
“The U.S. auto sector is critical to our country’s economic vitality. We will continue to urge the administration to reject imposing higher auto tariffs under Section 232. These imposed tariffs would weaken global competitiveness and invite retaliation from our trading partners, which could harm jobs and investment in the U.S.”
