Shrimp Tariff Proposed

Like shrimp? After tomorrow, you may be paying more for American shrimp. Southern shrimpers asked the government to place tariffs on foreign shrimp. Other countries have been importing so much, they're forcing local shrimpers to drop their prices.

Tomorrow the commerce department will decide whether to impose a tariff on the imported shrimp. If it does, you can expect to pay more for domestic shrimp.
