Join in the fight against proposed newspaper tariffs

  • Jan 15, 2018

The viability of local newspapers is being challenged by the proposed newspaper tariffs on the import of uncoated groundwood paper from Canada. Pennsylvania is home to 76 daily newspapers, and more than 150 non-daily newspapers - many of which serve small, rural communities. Newspapers in the Commonwealth cannot absorb the additional financial burden this proposed tariff is sure to create.

We must all do our part to protect the future of newspapers. The PNA has put
together a package of materials that includes an editorial written by PNA president
Mark Cohen, talking points and sample letters to make it easier for our members and
the public to contact legislators. We have also written a letter of opposition, which
will be sent to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Thank you to our members that have already run our editorial, or plan to do so.
