Welles Orr was quoted on bipartisan legislation aimed at preventing the Trump administration from imposing high tariffs for national security reasons. The legislation would retroactively require Congress to approve national security tariffs imposed within the last four years. The provision for retroactive action "is significant because that tells you they're serious about moving this to the end and they have some semblance of an idea of getting to a margin that could overturn a veto," Orr said.
