Sen. Portman Legislation Giving Certainty to Ohio LED Manufacturers Signed Into Law

Targeted News Service |

WASHINGTON, -- The office of Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, issued the following statement after President Trump signed the External Power Supply Improvement Act into law.

This bipartisan legislation will give needed certainty to Ohio LED manufacturers. Portman's legislation will exempt the manufacturers of energy saving LEDs from an onerous Department of Energy regulation that could have curtailed or stopped production of LEDs.

"I am pleased that President Trump signed this bipartisan measure into law.

"This bill gives needed certainty to Ohio's LED manufactures from a regulation that was never intended to affect them, and now these Ohio made products will not have to fear future federal action that could have stopped production of these goods and threatened manufacturing jobs.

"Our economy has already begun responding positively from the historic tax reform law and regulatory rollbacks, and it is incredibly important that we keep pursuing pro-growth, pro-America policies like the president has done today by signing this bill into law."

NOTE: Portman issued a statement following the Senate passing this legislation last month.
