Waco T-H: Lawmakers including Rep. Flores side with newspapers over tariffs

by Mike Copeland

U.S. Rep. Bill Flores, whose congressional district includes Waco, stood up for small-town newspapers and the print media in general this week, testifying against tariffs on Canadian newsprint that are driving up costs and piling more burdens on an already struggling industry.

Flores, R-Bryan, joined a bipartisan parade of lawmakers who railed against the levies that predate President Donald Trump’s trade war with China and his imposition of tariffs on aluminum and steel, tariffs some economists have said will harm U.S. consumers and dampen economic growth.
