Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement on the Biden administration’s decision to suspend tariffs on COVID-related medical products for six months:

“I’m glad the Biden administration is continuing the tariff exclusion for PPE. As we turn the corner in the fight against COVID-19, now is not the time to restore taxes on the equipment needed to make sure we do not backslide. In fact, I still believe Congress should end any uncertainty and suspend all taxes on imported PPE.”
