Two new congressmen to replace Murphy on Steel Caucus
U.S. Reps. Rick Crawford, R-Arkansas, and Mike Bost, R-Illinois, will co-chair the Congressional Steel Caucus, which represents the interests of steelmakers and steelworkers across the country.
Bost represents the southwestern portion of Illinois near St. Louis where U.S. Steel's Granite Works mill is located.
“Congressman Bost has been a leader in the fight to level the playing field for domestic steelmakers," Gibson said. "He lead the effort to enact the first improvements to our trade laws in more than 20 years, and has consistently stood up for American workers whose jobs are put at risk by global competitors who skirt trade laws. His long-standing commitment and dedication to steel has been key in promoting more fair competition for the American steel industry.”
