WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruling on China's rare-earth elements export policies:

“Today’s ruling by the World Trade Organization represents another strong effort by the Obama Administration to hold China accountable for circumventing international trade agreements.  The enforcement of trade rules is critical to ensuring a level playing field for American workers and businesses, and it must remain a top priority.  It is also a critical piece of House Democrats’ Make It In America plan for jobs and competitiveness.  I join in thanking the Administration for its hard work on behalf of our manufacturers and our workers in order to secure today’s important ruling.”
