Sens. Portman, Brown: China Trying to Undermine Ohio Manufacturers

This week, Ohio’s U.S Sens. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH), along with U.S. Reps. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) and Tim Ryan (D-OH), wrote to Department of Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, urging her to look into the anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders on steel trailer wheels from China.

According to a news release, the lawmakers are concerned China is attempting to work around these orders by nominally moving production to a third country, undermining U.S. trade laws and hurting Ohio manufacturers. 7/29/2021
