Congressional Steel Caucus Members Ask Biden to Support American Steel Industry with Strong Tariffs and Modern Rules

2/27/2023

Washington, DC – Congressional Steel Caucus Chairman Rick Crawford and Vice Chairman Frank J. Mrvan, along with 35 other bipartisan members of the Congressional Steel Caucus, have sent a letter to President Biden expressing support for maintaining the Section 232 tariffs and quotas and requesting that U.S. trade remedy laws be updated to reflect modern challenges facing the steel industry.

“We continue to support strong trade enforcement that will ensure a vibrant industry, competitive wages, and outstanding quality of life for our industry’s workers. We encourage the Biden Administration to continue to maintain the Section 232 tariffs and quotas, ensure strong trade remedy laws that address unfair trade practices, and protect our environment from high-emission foreign steel production,” the members wrote.

“The Section 232 tariffs have been vital to reviving the American steel industry and reinforcing our national security. Our steel sector manufactures the high-quality product we rely on for our roads, buildings, and everything in-between, and does so sustainably. Supporting American steel means supporting our environment, our jobs, and our communities, and should be a priority for our nation’s leaders,” said Rep. Crawford. 

“I thank Chairman Crawford and the Congressional Steel Caucus Members for joining this initiative to ensure that the voice of the dedicated workers and the steel industry is heard by the Administration.  Steel is essential to the strength of our national economy and our national security, and I look forward to continuing to work with all of my colleagues and the Administration to ensure that our domestic steel industry is able to thrive in our global economy,” said Rep. Mrvan. 

The Congressional Steel Caucus is a bipartisan group of over 100 Members of Congress dedicated to supporting the health and strength of the American steel industry and its workforce.
