Husisian Comments on Backlogs, Red Tape Facing Imported Steel Users

Partner Greg Husisian was quoted in an article in Bloomberg BNA International Trade Daily, “U.S. Manufacturers Seeking Tariff Relief Find Backlogs, Red Tape,” about the headaches U.S. manufacturers face trying to secure exemptions from the Trump administration’s steep tariffs on imported steel.

Husisian said steel users face months-long delays in getting a decision and an opaque process that allows domestic steel producers to sink companies’ requests for exclusions from the tariffs. “There is a lot of concern that the U.S. [steel] industry is getting something close to a veto power,” he said.
