Congress Approves Textile Machinery Duty Suspensions

James A. Morrissey, Washington Correspondent

Congress has approved duty suspensions on imports of four types of textile machinery that are not made in the United States. The duty suspensions will apply to high-speed shuttleless looms, some shuttle looms and certain ink-jet printing machines, and what Customs classifications call "other printing machines." The duty suspensions were non-controversial, but they had been held off for, months, as they were part of a bill that did contain some controversial issues. In addition to the action on textile machinery, the legislation also lifted duties on imported cashmere fibers that, likewise, do not compete with US products.
