NEW YORK — More than 150 members of the U.S. House of Representatives are opposing an initial decision by the U.S. Commerce Department’s International Trade Administration (ITA) not to impose anti-dumping duties on oil country tubular goods (OCTG) from South Korea, according to a June 13 letter to Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker.

The 153 lawmakers, including Congressional Steel Caucus chairman Rep. Tim Murphy (R., Pa.) and vice-chairman Peter Visclosky (D., Ind.), who co-authored the letter, have asked Pritzker to take action against unfair imports in the wake of the ITA’s preliminary determination in February, which found no dumping by Korean producers (amm.com, Feb. 18).....
