Right Move Would Exempt Company From Tariff

State Senator Eric Lesser says state  lawmakers are looking at ways to help keep local rail car manufacturer  

CRRC competitive in the face of new tariffs on Chinese imports from the  Trump administration.  

Lesser discussed the impact of the tariffs at  Western New England University on Wednesday.

Lesser said he hopes the Trump administration does the right  thing and grants the exemption request that has been filed by CRRC. 

One  thing he says he doesn't see happening is the state offering the  company tax breaks to offset the tariffs.

The issue is expected to be debated early next year.
