Rep. Tim Ryan Applauds Passage of Legislation that Ensures Commerce Department Can Continue to Apply Countervailing Duty Laws to Non-Market Economies

Location: Washington, DC

Today, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 4105, a bill to reverse a court decision that interfered with the Federal Government's ability to apply countervailing duty law to non-market economies (NME), such as China. Representative Tim Ryan (OH-17) co-sponsored this legislation and supported its final passage today.

"Ohio has lost close to 100,000 jobs due to unfair trade practices by China," said Rep. Ryan. "It's absolutely essential we do everything we can to ensure that our trade relationships are fair. I'm glad the House was able to come together today and pass this minor fix to our trade law with bipartisan support, but we must start to tackle the larger trade issues together if we're going to make any progress for American jobs and businesses.

Last year, the U.S. Senate passed a bill to hold China accountable for currency manipulation, and today, almost four months later, we still haven't held a vote on it in the House. I'm proud that President Obama has proposed the creation of a new trade enforcement unit, but I'm still waiting for Congress to take its own bold action to hold our trade partners accountable."
