IPAA President and CEO Barry Russell Letter to U.S. President Donald Trump on the Adverse Impacts a Steel and Aluminum Tariff Would Have on American Oil and Natural Gas ProducersLetters and Comments Mar 8, 2018

International trade policies present a similar challenge and the current initiatives on steel tariffs are a specific example.
