    More Than 45 Bi-Partisan Members of Congress Call on Bush to End Harmful Canadian Lumber Duties, Honor NAFTA, WTO American Consumers for Affordable Homes
    'We appreciate the call to action made by these Members of Congress who share our concerns about the unfair impact of the duties on consumers, while U.S. special interests destabilize the lumber market for their own gain,' said Susan Petniunas, spokesperson for the American Consumers for Affordable Homes (ACAH), an alliance that has been fighting for free trade and open lumber sales between the two countries.

    The Administration continues to turn a deaf ear on consumers and first- time homeowners in favor of lumber companies like International Paper, Potlatch, Plum Creek, Sierra Pacific, and Temple Inland, southern lumber producers, members of the Coalition for Fair Lumber Imports, an organization that has caused trade turmoil on this issue for lumber consumers for nearly 20 years, she noted.
