Weekly Poll (6)


The United States and Japan recently announced a deal to remove tariffs on 1.25 million metric tons of Japanese steel annually. Do you believe that this rollback will help mitigate inflation and material shortages?


President Trump recently announced an expansion of tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum to cover products made of the materials, such as nails, tacks, staples, cables, certain types of wire, bumpers, various car and tractor parts, among others. Do you believe the expansion will help stabilize the industry?


Toward the end of July, President Donald J. Trump signed an order that would promote the expanded use of American-made iron and steel in federal projects. The “Buy American” platform is slated to push the domestic content threshold from 50% to 95%. Do you believe this will help to boost the U.S. industrial economy?


The U.S. government has instituted tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from other countries, after years of alleged “dumping” that critics say hurt American steelmakers. Is this a positive move for the United States?


The Pennsylvania DOT is filling plug welds with bolts on 13 bridges in the wake of last year’s damage to the Delaware River Turnpike Bridge. Is this good preventive maintenance or is it unnecessary?


Several states have passed or discussed “Buy American” rules for steel and other materials on public works projects recently, in addition to President Donald J. Trump’s executive order calling on pipeline companies to use U.S.-made materials. Are these laws a step in the right direction?
