Ciprofloxacin, nimodipine duties
Trade duties would continue to be suspended through Jan. 1, 1995 under Rep. DeLauro's (D-Conn.) HR 4248 introduced Feb. 19. Ciprofloxacin HCI is the active ingredient in the broad spectrum antibiotic Cipro and nimodipine the active ingredient in the calcium channel blocker Nimotop, both manufactured in DeLauro's West Haven home district by Miles Pharmaceutical Division. DeLauro's HR 4247 would also suspend duties on nimodipine tablets.
