Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Richard Neal (D-MA) today released the following statement after the World Trade Organization (WTO) issued a report on a European Union (EU) challenge to aircraft subsidies:

“Today’s dispute settlement panel report is a wholesale rejection by the WTO of the EU’s allegations of illegal subsidies provided to Boeing. I support USTR’s efforts to appeal the limited findings in this report against one U.S. state-level program, and to move forward with steps to resolve this long-standing dispute, especially in light of the WTO’s findings that the EU has continued to provide Airbus with billions of dollars of harmful subsidies.”
