Sen. Lee Releases Statement Regarding President's Tariff Order

March 8, 2018

WASHINGTON - Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement today following President Trump signing an order to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum:

"The tariffs announced by the president today impose a tax hike on the American people--one that will harm both workers and consumers," Sen. Lee said. "While I am sympathetic to the issues facing domestic steel manufacturers, there are better ways to address the steel industry's concerns. In the meantime, I will work with my colleagues to use Congress's Article I power to make sure these tax hikes are never enforced."
