The Commerce Department on Nov. 24 moved forward with its next administrative review to double the tariffs on Canadian lumber shipments into the U.S. from 9% to 18%.
NAHB strongly opposed this move as it will only exacerbate market volatility, put upward pressure on lumber prices and make housing more expensive.
We need your help to get Congress involved. Please call or write your members of Congress today and urge them to tell President Biden to negotiate an updated softwood lumber agreement with Canada and increase U.S. lumber production by harvesting more timber from U.S. forest lands.
