Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) are urging the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) to protect Ohio-based companies like U.S. Steel from illegal Chinese trade practices.

The letter led by Senators Portman and Brown was also signed by ten of their Senate colleagues.

Senators Portman and Brown have worked together to champion the American steel industry and to make sure it can compete in the international market. Earlier this year, Senators Portman and Brown applauded U.S. Steel’s announcement that it would consider expanding operations in Lorain. The Senators’ efforts were vital to ensuring U.S. Steel was provided relief from Chinese steel pipe imports, and as a result, could support its facility in Lorain.
