WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the World Trade Organization's ruling that China's tariffs against U.S. steel are illegal:

"The ruling by the World Trade Organization shows that President Obama continues to stand tough against China and is fully committed to ensuring American businesses are competing on a level-playing field. This is just one in a number of cases the Obama Administration has taken to the WTO to hold China accountable for their illegal trade practices.

"Enforcing trade laws is a key part of House Democrats' Make It In America plan to revitalize American manufacturing. We will not allow other nations to skirt the rules and tilt the playing field in their favor."
