  • Ask US Senators to Support the PRINT Act of 2018

    PIA is endorsing the Protecting Rational Incentives in Newsprint Trade Act of 2018 (or PRINT Act) introduced in the U.S. Senate—requiring a pause in the imposition of new duties on Canadian uncoated groundwood (UGW) paper imports—until the DOC completes a study on the economic health of the printing & publishing industries.

    PRINT Act of 2018 provisions:
    • Requires a study by the DOC of the economic wellbeing, health and vitality of the newsprint industry and the local newspaper publishing industry in the US.
    • Requires a report from the Commerce Secretary within 90 days that includes the study findings & any recommendations the Secretary considers appropriate.
    • Pauses any affirmative determination by the DOC or the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) until the President certifies that he has received the report & has concluded that such a determination is in the national interest.
    • Halts the collection of cash deposits for UGW imports from Canada until the President has made such certifications.
    Printing companies are encouraged to contact their Senators to support this legislation.

    Please take action here to contact your U.S. Senators through PIA’s STOPP (Stop Tariffs on Printers and Publishers) campaign & urge your Senators to take every action possible to prevent further damage to the industry.

    If your company is being hurt now by these tariffs, tell PIA your story so it can better advocate on your behalf! Email PIA at to let them know.
