Statement: Revision to Newsprint Tariffs Welcome, but Does Not Solve Underlying Problem

On Aug. 2, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced its affirmative final determination on countervailing duties and antidumping duties on imports of uncoated groundwood paper from Canada, which includes newsprint. Commerce's determination revises the preliminary duties, which now range from 8.4 percent to 20.26 percent. While we appreciate the hard work the Commerce Department has put into this investigation and that the margins have been reduced, we believe the final determination does not solve the underlying problem. These taxes on Canadian imports for newsprint have already caused job losses at newspapers across the country and resulted in less quality news and information being distributed in local communities. more
