RESOLUTION SUPPORTING AMERICA'S

                 
DOMESTIC STEEL INDUSTRY

                 
2002 GENERAL SESSION

                 
STATE OF UTAH

                 
Sponsor: Ed P. Mayne

                  This joint resolution of the Legislature expresses support for emergency measures needed
                  to save the American steel industry.
                  Be it resolved by the Legislature of the state of Utah:
                      WHEREAS, the American steel industry is in jeopardy of being eliminated from the United
                  States due to imported and illegal dumping of steel in America;
                      WHEREAS, foreign countries that sell government-subsidized steel at below United States
                  market prices improve their own economies, while hurting American business and putting
                  American steelworkers out of work;
                      WHEREAS, existing laws in the United States regarding steel dumping are neither
                  enforced nor strict enough, have forced 18 United States steelmakers to file for bankruptcy
                  protection, and have resulted in the loss of tens of thousands of American steelworker jobs;
                      WHEREAS, the American steel industry plays a vital role in the nation's defense and
                  economic well-being; and
                      WHEREAS, the total collapse of the American steel industry could have a devastating
                  effect on manufacturers, businesses, and communities that depend on steel:
                      NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Legislature of the state of Utah
                  expresses support for emergency measures that need to be taken to save the American steel
                  industry.
                      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to the President of the
                  United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House
                  of Representatives, and the members of Utah's congressional delegation.
