The Washington Examiner is publishing today a spreadsheet showing all 2,000-plus MTBs, identifying each item and the companies that would benefit from each exemption. This is the data file behind our online story and in the print edition today looking at campaign contributions by tariff-seeking firms to congressional leaders.
Jennifer Peebles said: This story is a co-production with my colleague Mark Flatten. It's one in a series on tariff waivers. I did the data viz and the graphics.
Congressional leaders and campaign committees have raked in nearly $2.3 million in contributions since 2009 from companies seeking tariff waivers on products they import, according to an analysis by The Washington Examiner. Ten House and Senate leaders, including the chairmen of two congressional panels that approve the waivers known as Miscellaneous Tariff Bills, together got more than $1 million of the total. Five party organizations set up to get their partisans elected to Congress split another $1.2 million.
