ORR Members Testify Before USTR on Tariffs

Members of the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable (ORR) are making their case before the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), describing just how proposed Section 301 tariffs will hurt the outdoor recreation industry and American consumers.

Tom Cove, president and CEO of Sports and Fitness Industry Association; Glenn Hughes, president of American Sportfishing Association; Scott Schloegel, senior VP for government relations for the Motorcycle Industry Council; and Nicole Vasilaros, senior VP for government and legal affairs at the National Marine Manufacturers Association, are all testifying at public hearings this week and next.
