Texas A&M-Commerce economics professor Dr. Dale Funderburk says the tariffs on steel and alumninum proposed by President Trump would be bad for the Texas economy, particularly the oil and gas business.  Dr. Funderburk says if it's a national security concern to boost the steel industry, then it would be better to subsidize it rather than impose tariffs.
