U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) was at a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee Thursday and urged United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to ensure the Trump administration’s investigations into the nation’s supply of aluminum and steel take into consideration the potential impact tariffs and quotas could have on American manufacturers, including those in northern Indiana. “I would just ask [you] to consider the anxiety from my constituents about the prospect of tariffs and quotas on inputs that they depend on to make RVs, trailers, and all sorts of other products,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “Could you convey to the president and to Secretary Ross my request that they conduct these investigations and decisions that they’re making thoughtfully, thoroughly, and transparently to determine what the impact of action might be for American companies, to avoid any type of quick action that would hurt these companies.” The administration is expected to announce the results of the investigations and potential actions in the coming weeks.
