Babst Calland: Proposed Pa. Legislation Seeks to Require Use of Steel Products Produced in U.S.

By Elena L. Rorabaugh

Two pieces of proposed legislation were introduced to the Pennsylvania Senate on Thursday, July 31. Each has been referred to the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee. Senate Bill 1458, if passed, would amend Title 58 by requiring that steel casings (or other steel safety devices) used in in the drilling of an oil or gas well only use steel products produced in the United States. Senate Bill 1460, provides that products containing both foreign and United States steel shall be determined to be a United States steel product if at least 75% of the cost of the articles, materials and supplies have been mined, produced or manufactured in the United States.
