Time Is Running Out But It's Not Too Late to Fight the TariffsMay 21, 2018

Dear PAGE member: We urge all members who haven't done so to contact their local and state leaders to push for the for the approval of the Print Act 2018 recently introduced in the Senate, and to push for the elimination of the Countervailing Duties and Anti-Dumping penalties imposed on Canadian imports of newsprint into the US. The PDF document listed below will take you to a recent white paper update on these issues from Tonda Rush of the National Newspaper Association. Their website - (https://www.stopnewsprinttariffs.org) - will provide you with more information on the tariffs and how to fight them. Following we have included a sample letter from a local TX Chamber of commerce working with PAGE Member the Brazosport Facts. The final determination on the tariffs is scheduled for early August.

" Dear PAGE Member
The Brazosport Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors are very concerned regarding the tariffs on Canadian newsprint put into place earlier this year.
Newspapers already have challenges with social media and online news. The Department of Commerce has assessed preliminary newsprint tariffs, which range as high as 32 percent. We feel this could certainly cause a disruption in service that will threatened supply and drive costs up. Local newspapers, printers and book and directory publishers cannot absorb these costs.
If these tariffs remain permanent, there is no doubt people will lose their jobs in newspaper companies across America and unfortunately it may cause some papers to close. For most newspapers, a great percentage of their revenue is still derived from print.
A bi-partisan group of 10 senators introduced S. 2835, the "Protecting Rational Incentives in Newsprint Trade Act of 2018," or "PRINT Act" on Monday , May 14. It would suspend new newsprint tariffs until the Department of Commerce conducts a study on the economic impact of the taxes on the publishing and printing industries.
We urge you to sign on as a co-sponsor for this legislation, or to provide leadership in developing companion legislation in the House and to testify against the NORPAC petition at the International Trade Commission on July 17.
The Board of Directors of the Brazosport Area Chamber of Commerce strongly urge these tariffs be eliminated.
Sincerely,
Bob Sipple,
2018 Chairman of the Board "
