Tracking currency manipulation: Has your representative signed onto HR 1276?
The Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act, formally known as HR 1276, was introduced to the 113th Congress by U.S. Representatives Sandy Levin (D-MI), Tim Murphy (R-PA), Tim Ryan (D-OH), and Mo Brooks (R-AL). The bill would force action on China’s currency manipulation practices under U.S. trade law.
Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul said,
The Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act is a common-sense bill and should be passed and signed into law. Congress has acted on China’s currency in 2005, 2010, and 2011. I hope 2013 is the year that the stars align and both the House and Senate finally pass it.
To date, Rep. Sandy Levin has 155 co-sponsors signed onto the bill.
