Feb. 2, 2010: Congressman Ryan Releases Statement on ArcelorMittal

February 2, 2010
Press Release

Warren, Ohio – U.S. Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-17) made the following statement regarding the ArcelorMittal Warren Coke Operations:

 

“Today, ArcelorMittal confirmed the restart of its blast furnace and steel-producing operation at Indiana Harbor Works in East Chicago.  It is my understanding that ArcelorMittal and the United Steelworkers (USW) continue to hammer out the details for a restart of the ArcelorMittal Warren Coke Operations that could bring approximately 65 people back to work.  Paired with the best GDP growth since late 2003 (5.7 percent seasonally adjusted annual rate in the final three months of 2009), I take this to be a very encouraging sign that the Obama Administration’s stimulus plan is moving our economy forward and paying dividends to the constituents of the 17th District.  The bottom line is: people are going back to work.”
