Tom Carper said ( about Rob Portman ) : “For American manufacturers and small businesses that rely on imports, having a dependable and diverse supply chain is crucial to their operations,” “Restarting targeted tariff exclusions under Section 301 can give domestic manufacturers the tariff relief they need, especially when China’s unfair and predatory trading practices make these inputs too expensive. However, we must take into account lessons learned from the exclusions process implemented by the previous administration and partner with oversight entities like the GAO to ensure the exclusions process is reformed in a way that emphasizes transparency, speed, consistency and fairness. I am proud that Sen. Portman and I were able to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to see this language through to Senate passage” External link

Tom Carper said : “If we want to combat the existential threat of climate change and position our economy for the future, we need to ensure that our tax policies support and encourage innovative technologies that make a clean energy revolution possible,” “Hydrogen can be used as a zero-emitting fuel across our economy, from our cars to our factories. Today, there are technologies—many of which are made in Delaware—that can help this nation produce cleaner hydrogen than traditional processes. Clean hydrogen has a critical role to play in strengthening our country’s industrial sector and moving us closer to net-zero emissions by 2050. I’m proud to author legislation that will help make clean hydrogen production in the United States a reality” External link

We can’t have clean vehicles without clean vehicle fueling infrastructure—we must invest in both. The Securing America’s Clean Fuels Infrastructure Act will break down the financial obstacles to building the hydrogen refueling and electric charging stations we need across our country.

Tom Carper said : “The epidemic of obesity is hurting far too many families all across our country. The more than 40 percent of Americans who suffer from obesity are more vulnerable to conditions like diabetes, heart disease, various cancers and respiratory issues, which are even more dangerous during an unprecedented pandemic,” “While the health challenges regarding obesity are significant for individuals, this epidemic is also straining our public health system, imperiling economic growth and threatening our military readiness. While we have made some progress towards combating this problem, we have a long way to go to improve treatment options and affordability. This bipartisan and common sense bill would finally unleash federal Medicare dollars towards obesity treatments needed to help millions of Americans lead longer and healthier lives” External link

For too long, this well-intentioned program has not delivered for many smaller firms that lacked the relationships with larger lenders.

Tom Carper said ( about Rob Portman ) : “GSA’s move to implement the bipartisan recommendations Senator Portman and I laid out in our PSI report to improve Regulations.gov marks a significant step towards protecting the integrity of the comment process and ensuring it works in the public’s best interest,” “Public comment periods are crucial to making sure that those most affected by the rules and regulations put in place by federal agencies are able to give their input and help the federal government craft more effective, thoughtful and informed policies. Giving Americans the ability to have their voices heard in Washington is integral to our democracy, but for far too long, bad actors have overwhelmed the agencies with fake and irrelevant comments, making it difficult for substantive and relevant information from the public to get to decision makers. With these new GSA policies in place, the public will now have the opportunity to more efficiently take part in the comment process and have faith that their voices are being heard” External link

Van Hollen said ( about Tom Carper ) : “For years, Baltimore’s Highway to Nowhere has scarred the city, dividing communities and serving as a stark example of the long history of inequity in infrastructure. Reversing this history by creating infrastructure that brings people together instead of holding communities back is vital to our success as a nation. That’s why I worked to author a pilot program to help tackle this issue, and why I’m glad to join Senator Carper in introducing this legislation to broaden our investments so our cities can transform divisive and harmful projects into economic opportunity. From Baltimore to cities across America, this is a key infrastructure priority, and we’ll be working to get it done,” External link
