Tuesday, May 14, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Senator Stabenow released the following statement on President Biden’s announcement to increase tariffs on Chinese imports, including electric vehicles and semiconductor chips. Senator Stabenow joined the President at his announcement at the White House today. 

“I was pleased to join the President today for his announcement of new trade measures to protect American manufacturers and workers. Chinese electric vehicles are heavily subsidized by the Chinese government. With a level playing field, our auto industry and our workers can compete with anyone and win. But that means competing with companies, not countries. Michigan has seen the impacts of China’s unfair trade practices on our jobs. I appreciate the President’s leadership and strong support for our shared goal of ensuring that the electric vehicle transition is led by American workers.”
