JPMA Speaks Out Against 25 Percent Tariff Increase

Wednesday, May 8, 2019   (0 Comments)

If the President follows through on his threat to increase tariffs on Chinese goods to 25 percent, the consequences will be dire and could cost lives. The real effect of these tariffs is that essential and often life-saving baby products will become prohibitively expensive for many or even unavailable, forcing families to choose options that aren't as safe for their babies, like secondhand products or unsafe sleep environments. JPMA is working closely with Americans for Free Trade to urge the President to consider the potentially catastrophic impact of these tariffs on America's children.
