Print Powers America Takes Action on Newsprint Tariffs

Press release from the issuing company

Battling back on the newsprint tax (a.k.a. tariffs on uncoated groundwood paper imported from Canada) is a key lobbying priority and next week is a pivotal moment in this advocacy campaign. On July 17th, the International Trade Commission (ITC) will hold a hearing to determine whether to keep harmful tariffs on this critical raw material. Will you help us ensure that decision makers on Capitol Hill and in the Trump Administration hear loud and clear that Print Powers America?

You can help in three ways:

Sign our online petition and ask employees, customers, and other stakeholders to the same. Tell the ITC that trade law should not be used to harm the domestic print and publishing industry employing over 600,000 workers.

Urge your Senators and Representative to co-sponsor the PRINT Act (S. 2835/H.R. 6031). More than a quarter of Senators have signed on to this bipartisan bill and the House bill is gaining momentum. This bill would suspend current tariffs until a study is conducted on the economic consequences of such tariffs on the print and publishing industry.
