Rep. Bacon's Comments on Trade Tariffs

Omaha, NE, April 6, 2018

OMAHA, NE- Congressman Don Bacon (NE-02) released a statement following the announcement of possible additional tariffs on Chinese products:

“For too long the Chinese government has been stealing the intellectual property and trade secrets of U.S. companies, while dumping cheap products into the American market undercutting the value of what is produced here. 

I encourage the Administration to sit down and find a solution to this tariff war with China that protects the U.S.’s agricultural economy, promotes fair and free trade, and protects our intellectual property.

We must come to an agreement that will allow Nebraska’s export agriculture economy of $6.4 billion to remain competitive and flourish under reduced barriers. It is time the president keeps his commitment to press for trade agreements with other countries that will expand our opportunities.”
