House Ways and Means Committee members U.S. Reps. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) and Darin LaHood (R-Ill.), on Thursday led 139 fellow Members of Congress in calling on U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai to deliver targeted relief to American businesses, workers, and families by expanding the Section 301 exclusion process.

Their letter received widespread and bipartisan support, including Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and all Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee.

“We strongly support tough and effective action to address China’s unfair trade practices. China must be held accountable for commitments it has made to the United States and for its state-centered and nonmarket trade policies that have harmed American workers and the rules-based international trading system,” they wrote.

“We share the view that we need a holistic and pragmatic approach to confront future challenges from China and defend our economic interests against unfair competition.”

In April 2021, Reps. Walorski and LaHood wrote a bipartisan letter urging USTR Tai to create a new Section 301 exclusion process after the previous policy’s expiration on December 31, 2020.

According to a release, a Section 301 exclusion process would ensure that China, not American workers, consumers, and small businesses, will bear the brunt of the Section 301 tariffs.

“We strongly urge the USTR to expand its exclusion process as quickly as possible to give American workers, businesses, and families badly needed economic relief. To ensure that this relief is meaningful, we urge USTR to broaden the scope of the exclusion process to include all products covered under Section 301 tariffs and to ensure meaningful retroactivity to make businesses whole and keep them competitive,” the letter continued.

The full letter, including a full list of signers, is available here.
