Tim Brightbill Discusses Senate Proposal to Add Trade Enforcement to China Legislation
Timothy C. Brightbill, partner in Wiley’s International Trade Practice, was quoted by Law360 regarding a bipartisan effort to strengthen enforcement of U.S. trade remedy laws as part of a larger Senate bill to boost U.S. competitiveness against China.
The trade proposal, backed by Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Rob Portman (R-OH), would strengthen antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) laws to better combat unfair trade practices by foreign competitors, according to the May 19 article.
“The Senate China bill is critically important and has many useful provisions, but a China competition bill without a trade component is a real missed opportunity,” Mr. Brightbill told Law360. “The Brown-Portman trade legislation has bipartisan support and would provide some of the important trade law improvements that the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative need in order to address China’s pervasive unfair trade practices.”
