Emergency Tariff Act of 1921

Reversing the trend toward downward revision established during the Wilson administration, Republican leaders in Congress rushed through a temporary measure to ease the plight of farmers until a more thorough measure could be crafted.

The Emergency Tariff increased rates on wheat, sugar, meat, wool and other agricultural products brought into the United States from foreign nations, which provided protection for domestic producers of those items.

This measure remained in effect until the enactment of the Fordney-McCumber Tariff in the fall of 1922.
