Industrial parts suppliers are busy making the case that they’re doing everything possible to avoid the environmental costs associated with the manufacture of their goods.
The industrial parts industry employs more than 3.3 million people in the US and more than a quarter of the US manufacturing workforce.
They’re often criticized for not having enough pollution-free air and for using dirty air pollution to manufacture their products.
In an attempt to combat the issue, a new bill from Senate Republicans would prohibit the manufacture and use of all chemicals that are not approved for use in the manufacture or transportation of industrial goods, including those found in industrial parts suppliers.
Senate Republicans, in an effort to avoid being branded as a “petrochemical company,” are trying to push the bill through the Republican-controlled Senate in the hopes of getting it signed into law by President Donald Trump.
Environmental groups are pushing the bill in a separate effort to stop the importation of more than 100 products, including synthetic fibers and biofuels, from China.
The importation ban has been on the books since 2014.
Some Republicans have expressed concern about the import ban, arguing that it could hurt the economy and jobs in the state.
But others have expressed confidence that the bill will be passed and the Trump administration will sign it into law.
According to the EPA, the U.S. imports $2.7 trillion in goods from China every year.
The ban would impact the US aerospace and manufacturing industry, and has caused a number of major industry layoffs.
It’s unclear what impact the bill would have on jobs in other sectors, like agriculture.
