Politico Morning Trade: CONGRESS BACKS THE U.S. CABINET INDUSTRY

POLITICO MORNING TRADE, MEGAN CASSELLA

CONGRESS BACKS THE U.S. CABINET INDUSTRY: Forty-five members of Congress from both parties are urging the U.S. International Trade Commission to side with domestic industry in its investigation into Chinese imports of wooden kitchen cabinets and vanities, which petitioners argue are unfairly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.

In a letter sent this week to ITC Chairman David Johanson, lawmakers led by Reps. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) and Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) argue the case is “particularly important” to the American economy. Domestic industry represents more than 250,000 American jobs, the lawmakers wrote, adding that they “urge the Commission to ensure U.S. trade remedy laws are fully enforced.”
