United for Steel

US Steel will be re-opening the plant right next to us, in Granite City, bringing back 500 steel workers into employment.

This is not about the tariffs at all, by the way. This was all decided before the tariff announcement. The credit goes to the Illinois legislature that is going to make all state agencies and state-sponsored organizations use products made not only domestically but in Illinois specifically. This is an enormous project our state legislature (Democrat, by the way) has been working on for the past 2 years.

Two of my neighbors are proud United Steel members, by the way. I’m happy for them and for us.
