President Barack Obama signed a customs bill Wednesday that contains added protections for the domestic steel industry, whose advocates hailed it as a “good news day” and even a “great day.”
“Duplicitous foreign countries and foreign companies have been circumventing our trade laws to dump illegal steel into our markets for far too long,” said U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville, who serves on the Congressional Steel Caucus. “I was proud to support the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 in the House of Representatives and I am pleased that President Obama has now signed it into law.
Visclosky said the bill provides improved tools that will greatly assist U.S. Customs and Border Protection in its efforts to prevent illegal steel imports, thus saving American jobs.
