Last night, President Trump delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress.  SMA President Phil Bell issued the following statement in response:

“President Trump continues to emphasize his support for issues that are extremely important to SMA’s member companies.  Whether it’s using American-made steel in pipeline projects, investing in our nation’s infrastructure, enforcing our trade laws, or committing to “Buy American, Hire American”, President Trump’s priorities have the potential to have a sizable positive impact on the American steel industry.  We remain hopeful that Congress will work with the Administration to turn these statements into enacted policy in the very near future.”
