A Goodview company is hoping Congress will pass a bill that will reduce tariffs it pays for products it uses to make its sweaters.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune says the Knitcraft Corporation is one of a number of Minnesota firms requesting the House and Senate pass this years "Miscellaneous Tariff Bill."
The paper says Knitcraft wants a break on Italian wool and Australian spun cotton.
Knitcraft has joined bigger companies Minnesota like 3M and Target in seeking the bill's passage.
Knitcraft has been forced to import its raw materials like cotton after U-S suppliers dried up. That also means they have to pay a tariff on the products.
Knitcraft Vice president Mary Bergin told the newspaper the problem became the loss of copmpetiveness and that's why the firm turned to Congressman Eric Paulson for support on the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill.....
