Visclosky lauds Trump for Buy America steel order

Back To Front Page


U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-1st--vice-chair of the Congressional Steel Caucus--is applauding the Trump Administration for supporting American-made iron and steel products, in the recent presidential memorandum requiring the usage of domestic iron and steel in the nation’s pipeline infrastructure.

“This is positive step forward for American steelworkers who should know without question that American taxpayer dollars are being used to buy American steel,” Visclosky said. “The Congressional Steel Caucus has been adamant in our support for strong Buy America requirements, including the regulatory definition of ‘produced in the United States.’ We look forward to continuing to work with the executive branch to ensure that pipelines and all of the iron and steel used in American infrastructure projects are made in manufacturing communities across America.”
