July 23 - July 27, 2018

Several pipeline and oil and gas companies have gotten mixed results in their bids for exemption from the U.S. steel tariffs so far. In general, should these companies receive exemptions if the best quality steel for the job is from another country?

Too hard to say in a general sense; it needs to be looked at case-by-case.
No. If there's demand for the product and the tariffs make importing it costly, a U.S. company will start to produce it; that's the point of the tariffs.
Yes. Energy is a national-security issue, and these companies need the best-quality product as quickly as possible in order to do their job.
Other (please explain in the comments section).
