FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, DC, August 6, 2020 – As auto and auto parts plants across the country reopen and Americans begin returning to work, the auto industry is making slow but steady progress toward recovery. New tariffs on aluminum imports from Canada will not aid in this recovery and are not justified on national security grounds. We urge the immediate reconsideration of these tariffs so the industry can continue to ramp up production, make the significant adjustments required by the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement and continue to provide competitively priced vehicles to American consumers.
