WASHINGTON – Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte released the following statement today in response to the order on aluminum and steel tariffs:
“I’ve been reaching out to Montana farmers, ranchers, value-added manufacturers, and other ag leaders, and they’re concerned. These tariffs are a bad idea, because they could lead to Montana ag products being shut out of foreign markets. They also will drive up costs for America’s manufacturers and serve as a tax that increases prices for Montanans. I hope the president will reconsider implementing these tariffs.”
