News:
On November 24, the US Commerce Department DOUBLED the tariffs on imports of softwood lumber from Canada. This comes at a time when lumber prices are still well-above pre-pandemic prices, meaning this ill-advised decision by the Biden Administration to double tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber will only make matters worse for your businesses and customers.

These doubled tariffs will make already-high inflation worse, sending lumber prices soaring, adding tens of thousands of dollars to the price of a new single-family home and thousands of dollars to the price of a multifamily home.

Contact your Member of Congress, Representative John Joyce, and tell him to stop President Biden's trade war with Canada, which is punishing American homebuyers and renters. Rep. Joyce can be reached at: 5414 6th Avenue, Altoona, PA 16602; phone: 814.656.6081.
