NEW YORK — Fourteen senators have called on the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) to protect the domestic rebar industry by maintaining anti-dumping duties on concrete reinforcing bar imports from several countries in Asia and eastern Europe.

The senators, including Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), said in a letter to ITC chairman Irving A. Williamson that maintaining current anti-dumping duties on products from China, Belarus, Indonesia, Latvia, Moldova, Poland and Ukraine would be in the interest of the U.S. rebar industry and work force. The letter comes as the ITC is deliberating whether to maintain existing import duties on rebar imports from those countries (amm.com, April 23).....
