Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Trade Deal Dead for Now

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid broke publicly with the White House Wednesday on trade policy, instantly imperiling two major international trade deals and punching a hole in one piece of the economic agenda the president outlined in his State of the Union address a day earlier.

Mr. Reid told reporters he opposed legislation aimed at smoothing the passage of free-trade agreements, a vital component to negotiating any deal, and pointedly said supporters should back down.

Antidumping tariffs will keep China, India and other countries from flooding the U.S. market with hot-rolled steel for at least another five years.

The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled Tuesday that revoking existing duties on hot-rolled steel products from six foreign countries would cause economic damage to U.S. steelmakers and harm steelworkers, at least for the foreseeable future. The federal agency will continue to impose antidumping and countervailing tariffs on steel from China, India, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand and Ukraine.

"The decision made today by the ITC is a positive step in the right direction," said U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Ind. "My unwavering commitment to protecting and advancing steel and manufacturing jobs throughout Northwest Indiana will continue."

The former National Steel finishing facility, which the Pittsburgh-based steelmaker bought out of bankruptcy a decade ago, processes metal for cars, cans, refrigerators, highway signs, utility boxes, doors and roof shingles. The plant makes the steel -- forged 10 miles away at Gary Works -- more valuable with treatments, such as zinc coating to keep it from rusting for years.
