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.”
Today, members of the printing, publishing and paper-producing industries are announcing the formation of Stop Tariffs on Printers & Publishers (STOPP), a coalition to fight proposed countervailing and anti-dumping duties on imports of Canadian uncoated groundwood paper.
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.
