Arrington advocates for limited tariffs, cites benefits of trade to Texas economy
Lubbock Congressman Jodey Arrington took the House floor to advocate for free and fair trade.
In his speech, Arrington cites the benefits of trade to the Texas economy. He also urges President Trump to limit the scope of his tariffs to only affect bad actors, like China.
"I'm confident we can work with the White House so that tariffs ensure fair competition and protect our national security interests, while also making sure we don't harm consumers here at home," Arrington said.
The speech comes after he and more than 100 of his Republican colleagues penned a letter to the president expressing a "deep concern" about the presidents tariffs on foreign aluminum and steel.
