Tariff Resources for Illinois Chambers

Illinois Chamber Friends:
We know you're hearing a lot on tariffs over the past several weeks. To attempt to simplify things a bit, we've broken out the different types of tariffs below and the products/businesses that will be affected in the short term. Feel free to share this with your membership, and let us know if you'd like any more info.
Steel and Aluminum Tariffs
On March 23, the White House imposed new import tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum from most countries. Temporary reprieves for Canada, Mexico and the EU expired on June 1, effectively doubling the volume of imports subjected to tariffs.
