U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) met this week with President Trump at the White House along with a bipartisan group of 19 Senate and House colleagues to discuss trade issues. The Congressional delegation met with President Trump, Vice President Pence, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, and National Economic Council Chairman Gary Cohn to discuss the ongoing dual investigations into the effect of imports of steel and aluminum on U.S. national security. Senator Young reinforced to the President and his Cabinet the importance of both the steel and aluminum industries to Indiana, and urged a balanced approach to the import investigations. Indiana is one of the largest producers and users of both steel and aluminum products. The steel mill industry supports approximately 24,000 Hoosier jobs and the steel industry at large supports in excess of 160,000 high-paying Indiana manufacturing jobs. The Hoosier Aluminum industry supports approximately 45,000 high-paying manufacturing jobs statewide.
