Camp Floor Statement: H.R. 4105
Tuesday, March 06, 2012
In addition, this legislation fully complies with our WTO obligations. China agreed to be subject to countervailing duty laws when it joined the WTO in 2001, and the WTO has reaffirmed our right to apply these laws to China. Failing to enact this legislation would mean that we’re unilaterally giving away a right that allows us to protect American workers.
This legislation also brings the United States into compliance with its obligations by requiring the Department of Commerce to make an adjustment when there is evidence of a “double-remedy.”
Finally, I am pleased that this legislation, which has already passed the other body, is bipartisan and has the Administration’s support.
For all of these reasons, we urgently need to pass this important legislation. I urge all of my colleagues to support this bipartisan legislation.
