In the last Congressional session legislation specifically addressing the evasion of AD/CVD Orders was introduced in the Senate and in the House of Representatives, along with a House Resolution supporting enforcement of the trade laws. Unfortunately, neither of the bills made it out of Committee review before the end of the year and pending legislation does not carry over from one Congress to the next.

We recently met with lead sponsors of last year's legislation and discussed their plans to reintroduce similar legislation this year. We are working with these offices to encourage a bipartisan group of Senators and Members of the House of Representatives to co-sponsor the legislation.

We need legislation more than ever, as this illegal practice is growing in our industry and the other industries with active AD/CVD Orders.
