Toomey Bill Would Strip Trump of Tariff Authority

Deb Erdley, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Pat Toomey, Pennsylvania's Republican U.S. senator, went on the offensive Wednesday against the Trump administration's trade policies, promoting a bipartisan bill to strip the president of the authority to impose tariffs based on national security. Speaking at a Washington, D.C., news conference focusing on the impact of steel and aluminum tariffs as well as a raft of proposed tariffs, Toomey said President Trump's 2018 tariffs on steel and aluminum served no national security purposes and hurt Pennsylvania companies. “Trade is good for America. About 1.4 million jobs in Pennsylvania are supported by international trade. But trade wars are very, very dangerous,” Toomey said. And the toll is adding up in Pennsylvania. Toomey pointed to Pittsburgh-based ATI. The company, formerly known as Allegheny Technologies, was forced to pay $16 million to import slab steel; American Keg, the sole producer of stainless steel kegs in America, had to lay off one-third of its workforce when steel prices spiked; and Colonial Metal Products in Hermitage, a tinplate producer, took a major financial hit when tariffs caused prices for raw materials to spike. Economists with Trade Partnership Worldwide brought Toomey and fellow U.S. Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., Tom Carper, D-Del., and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., together to talk trade as they unveiled a study that projected the harmful impact existing tariffs — and more slated to go into effect March 1 — could have over the next three years. Laura M. Baughman, an author of the study titled “Tariffs Hurt the Heartland,” said a best-case scenario shows a loss of 934,000 jobs affecting every state as well as an added cost of $767 a year for the average U.S. family of four.
