The U.S. government recently imposed tariffs on imported uncoated groundwood pulp and paper — what the industry knows as newsprint. We need you to fight these unfair taxes. These discussion points will help you talk to your Congressmen and -women and your Senators about the PRINT Act to end these undue tariffs.
Today, in an effort to protect printers and publishers from unwarranted tariffs, Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Angus King (I-ME) introduced the “Protecting Rational Incentives in Newsprint Trade Act of 2018,” or “PRINT Act.”
In response to the Department of Commerce’s announcement today of preliminary antidumping duties on Canadian imports of uncoated groundwood paper – which includes newsprint used by tens of thousands of publishers and printers in the United States.
We are stunned that a single U.S. mill (NORPAC) has been able to manipulate the trade laws to their gain, while potentially wreaking financial havoc on newspapers and other commercial publishers across the country.
Today, more than 1,100 newspapers across the U.S. called on Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to heavily scrutinize the anti-dumping and countervailing duty petitions filed by paper mill, North Pacific Paper Company (NORPAC).
