AAFA hails re-instating job-creating trade benefits bill

Jul '10
American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) President and CEO Kevin M. Burke released the following statement after the U.S. Senate approved by Unanimous Consent the U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act (H.R. 4380), a measure to immediately re-instate job-creating trade benefits previously known as the Miscellaneous Tariff and Trade Bill.

“I applaud the Senate for quickly passing the U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act by Unanimous Consent.

“This legislation will bring direct and measurable benefits to our economy through job creation and the continuation of well-priced quality products. President Obama should sign this legislation as soon as it arrives on his desk.

“Along with our thousands of employees and our millions of consumers, the U.S. apparel and footwear industry stands to benefit from Senate action and President Obama's eventual signature. However, more work remains to be done to ensure that U.S. companies are able to maintain their competitive edge in the global marketplace and that our consumers are getting the best value for their dollar.

“AAFA will continue educating congressional leadership about the benefits of extending new provisions and trade benefits through the U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act, as well as long-term tariff reductions and eliminations like the Affordable Footwear Act.”
