Ron Wyden (D-OR) Speaks with AISI Board of Directors

Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR)

Current Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) spoke to the AISI Board of Directors Breakfast on November 13 about expected activities in the current lame duck session of Congress as well as what he expects the new Congress will bring regarding tax and trade issues.

In his role as chairman, Senator Wyden has held a number of hearings on issues such as tax reform, trade enforcement and trade facilitation, including a hearing in June on trade enforcement where U.S. Steel Chairman and CEO Mario Longhi testified. He has been a strong supporter of the U.S. steel industry, especially on policies such as: strengthening trade enforcement laws, reforming tax codes to be more competitive, incentivizing investment in domestic manufacturing and providing levels of investment to repair and expand the nation’s crumbling infrastructure.
