This year I am trying to get my news & information in more direct ways rather than through the filter of mainstream media. I subscribe to many Senators newsletters including Republican ones b/c I like to know directly what they are telling people.I found this interesting for the fact that it tells a little about improvements being made in manufacturing here in the U.S> BUT ALSO MENTIONS THINGS PRESIDENT OBAMA DID that no GOP member has acknowledged (other than Rob Portman, here in his newsletter)
From Sen. Rob Portman’s weekly newsletter: Rob Portman is Republican.
“The Steel Industry Preservation Act would provide a tax credit for steel companies that produce steel industry fuel, which is created by reusing waste products from steel production in an environmentally sustainable way. In addition to the tax credit, the production of steel industry fuel lowers the cost of steel production and promotes job creation.
Portman and Brown have also worked to give domestic industries the ability to fight unfair trade practices and Senator Portman has been widely acclaimed for his commitment to steel workers. In June 2015, their Leveling the Playing Field Act was signed into law by President Barack Obama, ushering in the most significant changes to trade remedy law since 2002.”
