Tariff must be higher,Weirton Steel CEO says

WEIRTON, W.Va. -- Weirton Steel Corp. said its chief executive, John Walker, was adamant with White House officials Thursday that a tariff of at least 40 percent against steel imports is needed and that an ongoing rumor of a 20 percent tariff is not acceptable.

"In regard to the rumor the administration will impose a 20 percent tariff, I told them it will not be acceptable by the companies nor the unions. I explained if the president imposes 20 percent, it will be woefully inadequate, and he may as well do nothing," Walker said.
