Canadian officials upset with Republican “Buy American” iron and steel bill

Published on May 16, 2017 under CommunityImpact

Editor’s note: This story has been updated with a statement from Friends of Texas Iron and Steel. A recent call from Texas lawmakers to “Buy American” iron and steel has upset some northern neighbors worried about the implications such a measure will have on Texas-Canada trade relations. In a letter dated May 15, three representatives of the Canadian government wrote that they were “deeply concerned” with a bill that recently passed both chambers that would expand a Buy American provision already in effect for the Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas Water Development Board to all state agencies.Via Texas Tribune
