DEFENDING AMERICAN WORKERS
I write to apprise you of actions that I have taken this past month to defend the American steel industry and steel workers.
• I voted for legislation supported by the steel industry and labor unions that will improve U.S. trade remedy laws.
The American steel industry and good-paying manufacturing jobs are under attack. I regret that there were not enough votes in the House to defeat TPA and that the President signed this measure into law . As the 114 th Congress proceeds, I will continue to fight every day to defend the American steel industry, strengthen Buy America requirements, and prevent unfairly traded steel products from being dumped on our shores.
For more information on my actions, please read the following documents or visit my website at visclosky.house.gov.
Shares of a number of U.S. steelmakers moved north last Friday after the U.S. International Trade Commission (“USITC”) confirmed the imposition of anti-dumping orders against six countries accused for illegally dumping cheap steel products into the U.S. market. The ruling marks a much-needed triumph for U.S. producers struggling to defend their turf from a flood of cheap steel from foreign manufacturers, especially from South Korea.

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.
"I'm against fast track," Mr. Reid (D., Nev.) said, using the shorthand term for legislation that prevents overseas trade agreements from being amended during the congressional approval process. "I think everyone would be well-advised just not to push this right now."
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 (ITC) 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. -

U.S. Steel's Portage, Indiana Plant Cranking out Steel for Automakers
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.
Bring Jobs Home
