Stop Tariffs on Printers & Publishers (STOPP) is a coalition of associations and companies fighting newsprint tariffs that threaten more than 600,000 jobs across the entire U.S. printing and publishing industry.
A single paper supplier, NORPAC, is trying to manipulate the trade laws and convince the government to assess tariffs on Canadian imports of uncoated groundwood paper, which includes newsprint. Publishers and printers will not be able to absorb these tariffs and will be forced to cut costs that will ultimately result in fewer American jobs.
The US government can use the nation’s trade laws to implement duties that will support U.S. industries and expand U.S. jobs. But the government’s proposed newsprint tariffs are a different story. The tariffs are not supported by the U.S. paper industry that it is intended to benefit. Furthermore, the tariffs are opposed by newspapers, book publishers, printers, elected officials, and others around the country because the tariffs will have unintended consequences and harm businesses, workers and local communities.
