BlueGreen Alliance Responds to Biden Tariff Announcement

May 14, 2024

President Biden today announced increased tariffs on electric vehicles, steel and aluminum, solar panels, and other goods from China and underscored how the tariffs will help protect U.S. workers from unfair trade practices. Following the announcement, the BlueGreen Alliance released a statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:

“President Biden’s industrial policies have targeted federal investment to the sectors that are vital to the economic and energy security of the United States, manufacturing workers and communities, and the fate of the planet. The tariff actions announced by the president are a forceful complement to these investments in American manufacturing and a strong statement that the United States will not engage in a race to the bottom when it comes to clean technologies.

“We should be building our clean energy future here at home. We applaud the action President Biden has taken today.”
