Casey Statement on U. S. Steel Decision to Idle Tubular Facilities in Pennsylvania and Texas

Washington, DC — U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement following U.S. Steel’s decision to close two tubular facilities – one in Pennsylvania and one in Texas.

“Time and time again, foreign competitors have flouted international trade laws to the detriment of hardworking Pennsylvanians,” said Senator Casey. “I have pushed the Administration to get tough to prevent the dumping of artificially priced products onto the U.S. market.  Today’s announcement is an unfortunate reminder that we must redouble our efforts to crackdown on cheating.  We cannot allow foreign competitors to undercut our companies by evading international trade rules.”
