                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
 Urging the President to request the United States International Trade 
   Commission to take certain actions with respect to the temporary 
    safeguards on imports of certain steel products, and for other 
                               purposes.

Whereas the President, upon investigation and recommendation by the United 
        States International Trade Commission, on March 5, 2002, proclaimed 
        temporary tariff increases and tariff rate quotas on certain steel 
        imports;
Whereas many United States manufacturing sectors have reported that the 
        temporary tariff increases and tariff-rate quotas have disrupted the 
        availability of input steel;
Whereas both a strong domestic steel industry and a strong domestic 
        manufacturing base are vital to our national defense and economic 
        security;
Whereas neither the President nor the United States International Trade 
        Commission could fully anticipate the positive or negative effects of 
        the temporary safeguards proclaimed on March 5, 2002; and
Whereas section 204 of the Trade Act of 1974 requires that the United States 
        International Trade Commission ``shall monitor developments with respect 
        to the domestic industry, including the progress and specific efforts 
        made by workers and firms in the domestic industry to make a positive 
        adjustment to import competition'' and submit a report on this 
        monitoring to the President and the Congress not later than September 
        20, 2003: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress--
            (1) recognizes that a strong domestic steel industry and 
        strong domestic manufacturing base are vital to national 
        defense and economic security; and
            (2) urges the President to request the United States 
        International Trade Commission, in addition to monitoring and 
        reporting on the items enumerated in section 204 of the Trade 
        Act of 1974, with respect to the tariff increases and tariff 
        rate quotas proclaimed by the President on March 5, 2002, on 
        certain steel imports, also to monitor and report on the impact 
        of the temporary safeguards on domestic steel consuming 
        industries.
