Senator Chuck Schumer is urging the Department of Commerce to reverse their anti-dumping policy to protect upstate businesses from losing out to foreign suppliers.

Schumer says current "targeted dumping" strategies are hurting U.S. businesses who cannot compete with the lower prices, like Rome-based Revere Copper.

The company's chairman, Brian O'Shaughnessy, says the government should not allow U.S. based companies to have to compete against artificially priced goods from other countries.

Revere has been in business since 1801 and provides jobs for 350 people in and around Rome.
