STOP newsprint tariffs that are threatening American newspapers

“The government, at the request of a single paper producer, has assessed tariffs (which are really new taxes) on newsprint imported from Canada.

The longer these tariffs remain in place, the greater the struggle of local newspapers, printers, and related suppliers to remain in business.

This is an abuse of trade laws: One company owned by a New York private equity firm is using punitive tariffs to protect its bottom line – and at significant cost to the local newspapers that are the foundation of an informed citizenry and healthy democracy.

The tariffs threaten hundreds of thousands of jobs in journalism, publishing, printing and other sectors.

Stand up against this injustice today and let the International Trade Commission know that these harmful tariffs should be reversed.”
