Washington, DC – Congressional Steel Caucus Co-Chairman Mike Bost (R-IL), Co-Chairman Rick Crawford (R-AR), and Vice-Chairman Peter J. Visclosky (D-IN), along with 65 other members of the Caucus, sent a letter to the President expressing support for the Section 232 investigation assessing the impact of steel imports on our national security.  Specifically, the letter states that the investigation must be completed as soon as possible because each day that passes is another day that the domestic steel industry faces an onslaught of imports and the deeply harmful effects of unfair trade practices.  The letter strongly urges the administration to release the report as expeditiously as possible so that action can be taken to protect the American steel industry and defend America’s national security. Complete list of cosigners and full text of the letter is available below. Dear Mr. President: We write as members of the Congressional Steel Caucus to reiterate our support for the
