WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today issued a statement on the reports that the United States is set to remove steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada and Mexico:

“I welcome the news the Administration is set to lift steel and aluminum tariffs on our closest trading partners, Canada and Mexico. Just this week, I met with local manufacturers and job creators in southwest Michigan and heard from them directly that these tariffs were driving costs up, hurting their business, and putting countless jobs at risk. I have repeatedly urged the Administration to lift these tariffs and am glad they are set to do so. This is a big win for manufacturers and job creators in our state and across the country.”
