Sen. Feingold Presses India for H-D

During a two-day trip last week, Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) pressed senior government officials in India to lower the high tariff currently imposed on Harley-Davidson, which he says has prevented the company from entering the India market on a level playing field.

"The high tariff placed on Harley-Davidson is patently unfair, especially since there are no heavyweight motorcycles manufactured in India," Feingold says. "Lowering this extremely high tariff would be an important and symbolic move to show us India?s willingness to open its market to American companies, and in turn help promote broader bilateral relations. This is an important issue for Wisconsin workers and I will continue to press it when I return from India."
