The Committee to Support U.S. Trade Laws (CSUSTL) strongly supports House passage of H.R. 1295, which includes the Leveling the Playing Field Act. The trade law enforcement provisions found in the Act are critical tools for U.S. manufacturers, growers, and workers in thousands of communities to combat trade distorting practices that threaten their ability to compete fairly in the global arena.
CSUSTL’s members, which span all major industrial sectors, including manufacturing, technology, agriculture, and mining (companies, associations, and worker representatives), depend on strong trade laws to ensure that they can compete on equal footing with foreign competitors who dump to gain advantage in the U.S. market, or who benefit from government subsidies.
On Wednesday, June 24, 2015, the U.S. Senate passed H. R. 1295, the Trade Preferences Extension Act with an amendment adding Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and the Leveling the Playing Field Act. The measure will now go to the U.S. House of Representatives for a vote, likely Thursday, June 25.
