Proposed MTB Legislation Could Offer Duty-Free Access for Dozens of Travel Goods Items

Last month, the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) submitted its final report on miscellaneous tariff bill (MTB) petitions it received under the 2016 American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act (AMCA) to Congress. The final report recommends a few dozen travel goods items in MTB legislation that Congress will consider this fall. If approved, the legislation would provide U.S. imports of certain travel goods, and hundreds of other products, temporary duty-free access, no matter the source country. TGA will actively push Congress for passage of the MTB legislation.
