The Greater Irvine Chamber is among 274 chambers of commerce in the United States, 52 at the national level and 222 at the regional level, that supported in a letter the legislation introduced by Senator Bob Corker to limit the power of President Donald Trump to impose tariffs for national security purposes.

“On behalf of the undersigned business and agricultural organizations, we are writing to support the legislation (S. 3013) of Senator Corker and a bipartisan group of senators to require the President to present to Congress any proposal to increase tariffs in the interest of the national security under Section 232 of the Commercial Expansion Act of 1962,” they wrote.

The chambers urged all members of the Senate to reconsider the bill. In early June, 10 United States senators, five republicans and five democrats, presented an initiative that would force the President to receive authorization from Congress when he wants to raise tariffs arguing national security reasons.
