concurring with the findings of the two reports and determining that 
adjusting imports through the imposition of duties on steel and

State, the United States Trade Representative, the Assistant to the 
President for Economic Policy, the Assistant to the President for 
National Security Affairs, and other senior executive branch officials

parties affected by the duties. This could take place if the Secretary 
determines the steel or aluminum for which the exclusion is requested 
is not produced in the United States in a sufficient and reasonably 
available amount or of a satisfactory quality or should be excluded 
based upon specific national security considerations. The President 
directed the Secretary to promulgate regulations as may be necessary to 
implement an exclusion process. The purpose of this information
