PMA Members Staying Front and Center
in Congress over Steel

Tuesday, May 24, 2005
 
Last Thursday, May 19, several members of the Precision Metalforming Association, Independence, OH, met with members of Congress to ask for help in ending unnecessary trade protection for the steel industry. The representatives of steel-consuming companies asked for the end of import duties on nearly 200 steel products that are contributing to severe supply problems and high prices. PMA members offered numerous potential policy solutions, including granting steel consumers “Interested Party” status during antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings. Also, PMA president William E. Gaskin stressed the importance of repealing the Byrd Amendment, which distributes money collected from the duties directly to the companies that petitioned for them.
