Walorski Statement on Tariff Signing

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today released the following statement on proclamations President Trump signed to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports:

“While the exemption of some U.S. trading partners is a step in the right direction, these tariffs remain too broad and will put Hoosier jobs at risk. Anything other than a balanced and targeted approach will raise costs for manufacturers, slow our economic momentum, and let bad actors like China off the hook. I will continue listening to Hoosiers while working to narrow this policy and minimize any negative impact on local businesses and workers.”


Congresswoman Walorski recently sent a letter to President Trump expressing concerns with his tariff proposal and sharing feedback from local manufacturers. She also signed a letter, along with 106 of her House Republican colleagues, urging the president to target unfair trade practices while protecting American jobs, manufacturers, and consumers.

In an op-ed published in The Hill today, Walorski called on President Trump to “find a fair, balanced, and effective solution that builds on his pro-growth agenda, supports our manufacturers, and protects American workers.”

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
