Tariffs affect local industry

When you ask Algoma Lumber Company President Dan Kudick how the industry is doing in 2019, his response is a reserved "okay." Kudick believes that the main headwind is the spat of trade wars in recent years. China gets the most attention but the US has had escalating tensions with European and North American countries as well.


The industry is also lobbying for a change in travel restrictions for lumber trucks on the interstate highway system. The hope is to attach the Safe Routes Act of 2019 to the highway appropriations bill to help push it through as the year wraps up on Capitol Hill.
