Help Us Make the Tariff Suspension Permanent!

Posted 03/26/2021

Now more than ever, your support is needed to put a permanent stop to the retaliatory tariffs that have negatively impacted the beverage alcohol industry! WSSA is a part of a coalition of over 40 associations supporting the #ToastsNotTariffs initiative. However, we need more support in the House of Representatives to make this effort stronger. When we say now more than ever, we know you are all experiencing delays due to congestion and shipping issues on product moving from Europe. The potential threat of tariffs being reinstated in July will only put further strain on an already strained supply chain. A surge in shipments to get in product before the expiration of the suspension will create even more chaos. Let’s work together to get the tariffs suspension permanent! Below is the information put together by coalition leaders from DISCUS on how you can help. 

Please share this letter with your Congressional contacts/delegation members and register the importance of the spirits/beverage alcohol tariff issues to your company. If a Member of Congress is interested in signing, the points of contact for the letter are:

Congressman Yarmuth: Katy Rowley,

Congressman Barr: Daniel Taylor,

To contact your members of Congress,visit the DISCUS grassroots platform Spirits United to drive Congressional signatures on the letter. And please share this campaign with your colleagues, association members, friends, family members to urge their members of the House of Representatives to sign!
