WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today in response to President Barack Obama’s decision to address the increase of low-priced Chinese tires in the U.S. marketplace:
"I applaud the President for taking action to ensure that American workers and industry can compete fairly. I am a strong supporter of trade and believe that it has many benefits, but everyone must play by the rules. China and the United States both agreed to a set of trade guidelines, and it is paramount that those be upheld. By enforcing those provisions, President Obama strengthens and respects their meaning."
