Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the following statement regarding an agreement reached by the United States, Canada, and Mexico to remove tariffs on steel and aluminum imports (Section 232).

“I have raised this issue with the President and his team, and I appreciate the successful completion of these negotiations by the Administration. The removal of these tariffs is a major step forward on two fronts; it signals the end to retaliatory tariffs placed by Canada and Mexico which have impacted Nebraska producers, manufacturers, and consumers, and is also a necessary and important step toward adoption of USMCA. Maintaining the trading relationships with Canada and Mexico is crucial to the Nebraska rural economy.”
