    Visclosky, Steel Caucus propose bill to safeguard steel tariffs

    Congressman Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville, and the Congressional Steel Caucus are proposing a bill that would keep steel tariffs on China in place.

    Their bill would keep China from being recognized as a free market economy. That recognition would potentially undo all the tariffs imposed against state-sponsored Chinese steelmakers. Visclosky, Congressional Steel Caucus Chairman Tim Murphy and other members also discussed the global steel import crisis Thursday with Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman.

The study – “Overcapacity in Steel: China’s Role in a Global Problem” – found Chinese steelmakers have been building more mills with the help of subsidies and government incentives.
