Congressional Steel Caucus
INDIANAPOLIS | Steel dumping poses a real threat to jobs in Northwest Indiana, and policy-makers in Washington need to take heed, industry officials said.
The oft-cited but still impressive statistic is that more steel is made in two counties — Lake and Porter — than in any other entire state.
Steel's strength is important not just for structural components but also the economy and national security.
U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville, and other members of the Congressional Steel Caucus are calling for a crackdown on the illegal dumping of steel that has been subsidized by foreign counties.
U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky's legistion requiring the federal government to use U.S.-made steel for public projects makes sense.
U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville, applauded a decision by the U.S. Department of Defense that restores a rule that stood for 35 years requiring certain types of steel purchased by the U.S. military to be 100 percent American-made.
Members of the Congressional Steel Caucus are pushing for a U.S. trade panel to extend duties on corrosion-resistant steel from Germany and South Korea to avoid an import surge.
Congressional Steel Caucus members are urging the U.S. Department of Commerce to enforce a ban on China's dumping subsidized steel pipe used in oil and gas drilling into the American market.
Top U.S. steel industry officials called on Congress and the federal government Wednesday to embrace policies that support the manufacturing sector, which has been key to the country's economic rebound.
Congressional Steel Caucus members say they are concerned about the impact a mid-December decision from a federal appellate court could have on trade-sensitive American industries.
Members of the a bipartisan legislative bloc supporting the steel industry are calling the International Trade Commissions decision last week on imported steel plate a split decision.
The Congressional Steel Caucus wants the Department of Defense to tighten its rules so that armor steel plate it wants to buy can't be melted in another country.
Steel industry leaders told a panel of lawmakers Thursday they are struggling to grow jobs with a tepid economic recovery and called on Congress to develop stronger rules targeting unfair trading practices by foreign countries.
The Congressional Steel Caucus will discuss the state of the steel industry at a hearing Thursday in Washington.
U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky introduced legislation Tuesday in the House requiring the U.S. departments of Transportation, Defense and Homeland Security to use American-made iron and steel only in their projects.
Members of the Congressional Steel Caucus are pushing President Barack Obama to demand an end to China's unfair trading practices they say imperil the United States.
