Steel and Aluminum Tariff Exemption Set to Expire Tomorrow

On March 8, 2018, President Trump signed into effect tariff increases on raw steel and aluminum. A temporary exception was granted to Canada and Mexico, however, it is due to expire after today.

The next round of negotiations is scheduled to begin on May 7, 2018.
