    Steel in the News


Virtually all the editorial boards of major national newspapers, and many local and regional publications, have espoused the steel consumer position in the steel tariff debate. For example, since March 2002 when the 30 percent tariff was imposed, articles, editorials and opinion pieces have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Washington Times, and many others.

The news articles listed below include descriptions of the steel-consumer argument and/or quotes from steel-consuming Task Force member companies or CITAC executives.
