In light of today’s Senate Finance Committee hearing, we decided to roll out some of our new GSP import data by state.  For example, did you know that….

  • Five of the top six states in terms of tariffs paid through April because of GSP expiration are represented on the Finance Committee?
  • Maryland, represented on the Committee by Senator Ben Cardin, ranks 1st among all states in 2011 in per capita GSP imports and per capita GSP tariffs?
  • Kansas, represented on the Committee by Senator Pat Roberts, ranks 4th among all states in the average tariffs paid because of GSP expiration?

Below are several graphs created to highlight the new GSP imports by state data.
