Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) is a busy man these days. In the last week or so, he’s thrown his weight behind numerous initiatives to help his home state, including SBA loans, food distribution and the procurement of a COVID-19 testing machine. But another of Portman’s maneuverings affects people across the entire nation. That’s because Ohio happens to be home to GOJO Industries, makers of Purell. Dispensers for the hand sanitizer depend on a pumping mechanism that, thanks to tariffs imposed by the Trump administration, are now in short supply. Portman is working to lift those tariffs.
