The Department of Commerce has self-initiated an investigation under section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.
From the article:
"The investigation will determine whether imports of automobiles, including SUVs, vans and light trucks, and automotive parts into the United States threaten to impair the national security as defined in Section 232," stated an article by the Department of Commerce. "This investigation will consider whether the decline of domestic automobile and automotive parts production threatens to weaken the internal economy of the United States, including by potentially reducing research, development, and jobs for skilled workers in connected vehicle systems, autonomous vehicles, fuel cells, electric motors and storage, advanced manufacturing processes, and other cutting-edge technologies."
Effective April 1, the Department of Agriculture’s Marketing Service will increase the assessment rate from $0.35 to $0.41 per thousand board feet (MBF) on imported softwood lumber.

This rule will also add the conversion factor for square meters to board feet and makes one conforming change.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and officers nationwide are continuing reports of residents receiving unsolicited calls from scammers posing as U.S. Border Patrol agents and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers. Individuals are reporting the calls are a pre-recorded message stating, “a box of drugs and money being shipped has your (callers) name on it and it has been intercepted.” The caller is then instructed to press #1 to speak with a CBP Officer/Agent, which then attempts to get the callers banking information.
These calls are phone scams/phishing attempts and residents are urged to not provide the caller with any information. The Department of Homeland Security and CBP does not solicit personal information by phone. If such calls are received, people should make a note of the number and any other pertinent details about the call and immediately hang up and report the incident if possible.
Phone scams can be reported to the Federal Trade Commission online at https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/.
