Survey on newsprint tariffs due by July 3
SNPA needs every publisher's help with an important survey as we – and our partners with Stop Tariffs on Printers & Publishers (STOPP) – collectively fight the newsprint tariffs on Canadian newsprint.
On July 17, the International Trade Commission will hear testimony on the preliminary newsprint tariffs. The coalition has asked Members of Congress to testify or submit comments for this hearing, and describe the impact of these tariffs on their local newspapers and jobs within their districts/states. We are also asking them to argue that U.S. newsprint producers will be harmed by the tariffs as their customers reduce their consumption of newsprint by cutting pages; reducing days of delivery, etc. Relatedly, last Wednesday, the Secretary of Commerce (who has an important and distinct role in the newsprint case) expressed interest in receiving information from newspapers on the impact of the tariffs on their businesses.
We need your participation in an industry survey (see link below) so we can collect data that can be shared with Members of Congress and the Department of Commerce.
We ask that you answer as many questions as possible by July 3.
