By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Commerce Department is set to announce Tuesday it will open a new anti-dumping probe to determine whether fabricated structural steel from Canada, China and Mexico is being sold at below fair value, a person briefed on the matter said. The investigation comes as some U.S. lawmakers, car companies and Canada and Mexico have strongly urged the Trump administration to drop U.S. national security tariffs on steel and aluminium imports in the wake of a deal announced last year to revise the North American Free Trade Agreement. The fabricated structural steel under investigation is used major building projects, including commercial, office and residential buildings, arenas, convention centres, parking decks and ports. The Commerce Department told lawmakers Tuesday the new probe is based on a petition filed earlier this month by a U.S. steel trade group. In 2017, imports of fabricated structural steel from Canada, China, and Mexico were … [Read more...] about U.S. opens anti-dumping probe into steel imports from China, Canada, Mexico

A federal safety agency is recommending that all new motorcycles built for road use in the U.S. have anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control as standard equipment. Antilock brakes have been required in U.S. passenger cars since 2000. They pump the brakes many times per second to stop wheels from locking up and skidding. Electronic stability control applies brakes and power to the wheels to keep a vehicle stable. less FILE- In this May 5, 2017, file photo, Ramadan Abdelaziz, of Jersey City, N.J., rides his motorcycle over floodwaters on his way home from work in Newark, N.J.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - European lender Santander <SAN.MC> has agreed to settle claims by a U.S. consumer watchdog that it misled drivers about the costs of loans and the coverage of related insurance policies, said three people with direct knowledge of the settlement. Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc <SC.N>, an affiliate of the Spanish banking group, allowed borrowers to make interest-only monthly payments without explaining that doing so would increase the total cost of the loan, said the people familiar with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) sanction. The lender also failed to explain to customers how an insurance policy - known as 'guaranteed auto protection' (GAP) - would not always cover the costs of replacing a car that was destroyed in an accident. Santander Consumer has agreed to pay a fine and strengthen its consumer protections, said the sources. Reuters could not ascertain the size of the fine. A spokeswoman for Santander Consumer declined to … [Read more...] about Santander to settle U.S. consumer watchdog auto-finance claims
