Wyden Statement on Legislation to Rein in Donald Trump’s Tariff Authority

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued the following statement on the status of legislation to limit Donald Trump’s tariff authority under Section 232, in response to a speech by Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa:

“I share the chairman’s goal of legislation to discipline Donald Trump’s erratic use of trade authorities that could gain overwhelming bipartisan support, and I look forward to working toward that goal. As of now, that legislation does not exist, due to concerns on both sides of the aisle.”
