United States begins tariff exemption process for certain goods

The tariffs would also ripple through the USA health care and education sectors, the trade groups said, because these industries rely on consumer electronics and imported goods and would face higher costs.
Leading US trade associations have written to President Donald Trump urging him to halt plans to slap tariffs on Chinese imports.
The trade groups represent companies such as Apple, Alphabet - the parent company of Google - Walmart and Nike.
More than 40 trade groups are petitioning the Trump administration to back away from tariffs on Chinese imports, saying the plan would "would trigger a chain reaction of negative consequences for the USA economy".
According to The Washington Post, senior aides had presented Trump with a United States dollars 30 billion tariff package that would apply to a range of products. The administration is said to be considering targeting at least $30 billion of Chinese imports. "We can not allow this to happen as it has for many years!"
The organizations said in a lettersent to Trump on Sunday that potential tariffs on China would raise prices on consumer goods, kill jobs and drive down financial markets. Such measures could also hurt USA companies that sell components of products exported from China, as well as raising input costs for American manufacturers, the coalition said.
The order has also opened the door to the country's security and trade partners that want to get tariff waivers, as long as they can offer satisfactory alternatives during their talks with the U.S. Trade Representative office.

But the Hokies could never extend a lead on Alabama hung within two possessions the entire half by going 16-for-27 from the field. Experience matters in March, and the Hokies have the benefit of last year's NCAA Tournament to prepare them for this year's game.
