Roskam Reacts to New Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum Imports

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Representative Peter Roskam (R-IL) released the following statement in response to the Administration's actions on tariffs:

"While we must stop countries like China from dumping steel in our market, the actions taken today by the Administration could hurt companies, employees and consumers in my district. The establishment of an exclusion process for American companies and manufacturers that are required to import steel due to a lack of domestic supply is a positive step in mitigation. I hope to see this rolled out in a manner that won't disrupt our manufacturing.

"American workers deserve a trade policy that won't disrupt their workflow nor impede their ability to compete internationally. Excluding Canada and Mexico from these tariffs, is a start, but we must guarantee a swift and transparent process for our allies that trade fairly."
