WHERE       National Press Club, 529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor, Washington, D.C. 20045

WHO           Richard Chriss, President, American Institute for International Steel

                    AIIS Legal Team

WHY              President Trump’s Section 232 tariffs on imported steel and aluminum have already created significant collateral damage for U.S. industries. American ports and steel importing companies are seeing throughput decline sharply. Meanwhile, U.S. steel-using manufacturers are  encountering product price increases of 50% or more and are experiencing  difficulty in obtaining the steel they need, regardless of whether they buy domestic-sourced or imported steel.

This briefing will announce the launch of a legal challenge that seeks to remedy a situation that is bad for the American economy and American workers alike. The legal action will commence Wednesday morning, with attorneys available at the press conference to describe and discuss this critically important, first-of-its-kind initiative.

About AIIS   The American Institute for International Steel, representing 120 member companies, is America’s leading voice for the steel supply chain, and the only voice in Washington, D.C. for free and responsible trade in steel.
