Aug 30, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the below statement following President Trump’s Wednesday night proclamation stating exclusions would be considered for the importation of products subject to Section 232 quotas, such as specialized steel imports from Brazil and Argentina.

“I’m pleased the administration is now accepting requests to exempt specialized steel components which are not available from domestic sources. I have consistently urged President Trump to adopt an efficient exclusion process so Nebraska manufacturers are able to obtain these much needed inputs. I am thankful the administration recognized my concerns and responded in a constructive manner.”
